The Student Tech Team will promote Hour of Code activities by visiting elementary school classrooms and assisting teachers marking the event in grades 6 and 8. Beginning December 7, Grade 7 students will visit the Higgins Library to experience coding in a variety of ways: using their chromebook to complete drag and drop coding using games designed for Hour of Code and programming Sphero robots.
