Students at many schools across the district took part in the global "Hour of
Code" initiative in December. This is a one-hour introduction to computer
science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics.
According to the Hour of Code website, 82.6 million-plus people across the world
have given it a try, from Glencliff kindergarten students to President Obama to
fifth graders at Hillside, Niskayuna High School students, and students at both
district middle schools.
