 Oak Ridge Students Participate in Hour of Code
 

Oak Ridge Middle School students participated in the global, Hour of Code event on Friday, December 9th.

Sixth Grade Student Tessa Werner said she, "likes when you get to interact with other things within the program, such as having to jump or interact with the animals." Tessa also said she really enjoys learning about technology in her computer classes.

According to Erica Rausch, Oak Ridge Principal, "students participated in a coding activity during their quarter class." The students used the media center, mobile computer labs, and fixed computer labs in classroom pods to participate in the event.

"Typically, women and minorities are underrepresented in Computer Science professions," said Michelle Gapstur, a 6th/7th grade computer class teacher. "By exposing all students to computer coding they learn that Computer Science is a career path they can choose if it is something they are interested in."

Code.org created the Hour of Code event to help eliminate this underrepresentation. Gapstur said, "the day is to celebrate Computer Science Week by having students participate in a coding activity." The goal, according to Gapstur, "is to expose students to computer coding."

Computer Science Week runs December 5th-11th. Over the course of the week students and teachers take part in nationwide Computer Science and coding activities.
