Bret Harte Elementary School students participated in Hour of Code, an introduction to computer science designed to diversify the technology industry.

At Bret Harte, students are using basic programming on MacBooks to learn how to give commands in order to accomplish a task. Along the way, students are learning keyboard skills such as scrolling, clicking and dragging and sequencing.

“The programming also helps in developing spelling skills and creating stories,” says Principal Lorena Carrillo. “It is fascinating to see how much the students can accomplish.”
