ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque Public Schools students are getting a first-hand look at computer science.
Students at Jackson Middle School joined the annual “Hour of Code” event, introducing kids to the world of computer coding.
“This is a great way to get students interested, number one, and find the fun of it. And then number two, to have in the back of their mindset, ‘Hey for this job, I can use some coding and create something really cool,” said Diana Santiago of Jackson Middle School.
As part of the global event, Google is holding a competition for students to create a doodle for its homepage.
The winner could receive a scholarship.
