JAMESTOWN, N.D. (UJ) – University of Jamestown students who are majoring in Education will participate in the first-ever North Dakota statewide “Hour of Code” event on Dec. 7, 2018.
Students will participate in the event from 2-3 p.m. in the University’s SmartLab.
“Our pre-service teachers will be participating with many K-12 students not only throughout the state but worldwide,” said Dr. LeeAnn Nelson, Assistant Professor at UJ. “This opportunity will provide them with computer science knowledge, skills and experience that they can take into K-12 classrooms.”
“Hour of Code” started as a one-hour introduction to computer science designed to show that everyone can learn the basics of coding and to broaden participation in the field of computer science.
It will take place during Computer Science Education Week, which runs from Dec. 3-9.
