Coding is a 21st century skill. Whether you are a software engineer, or not, coding is everywhere and in someway shape or form affects a student’s career trajectory. Given that importance Ms. DeHart made it a priority to expose, teach coding in any way she could. Not knowing how to code herself, and have little time to learn, she was supported by students that offered peer-to-peer teaching.
The result were very positive: student-sponsored hackathons, coding curricula, robotics, seminars, a coding clud, etc. The Hour of Code is a wonderful way to support students in coding.
