Celebrating an Hour of Code

Celebrating an Hour of Code

To mark Computer Science Education Week, Westhampton Beach Elementary School students spent an hour learning code on Dec. 3 through activities provided by Code.org.

Known as the Hour of Code, the experience gives students an opportunity to explore coding as the basis for a possible career in computer science. It also allows them to hone their problem-solving skills.

BNL 1

Westhampton Beach Elementary School third-graders enjoyed an educational trip to Brookhaven National Laboratory on Oct. 31. During their visit, they took part in a variety of hands-on scientific activities led by BNL representatives. They were also challenged to find solutions to engineering problems and learned how to create simple circuits. Pictured from left are students Noah Murphy and Jude Dawson.
