ILES first grade students are getting experience in the world of computer programming and science. 
Students in Wes Hall's classroom participated in the Hour of Code during World Computer Science Week from December 4-10th. They took a few minutes each day to use Chrome Books and work on websites like studio.code.org and lightbot.com where they can practice elementary coding skills. The students logged more than an hour of figuring out what commands make the characters in simple games move across the computer screen in the desired route. 
The official Hour of Code website explains that coding 
helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.
Students even earned their official certificate proving they participated in this international computer science event.
