University of Jamestown students who are majoring in Education recently participated in the first-ever North Dakota statewide “Hour of Code” event on Dec. 7, 2018. Students participated 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. Computer Science Education Week, which runs from Dec. 3-9.
