Freehold High School Clocks Over a Thousand Hours of Code
In keeping with the spirit of Computer Science Education Week, December 9 through December 15, the Computer Science Academy of Freehold High School (FHS) is sponsoring a CODE-IN!
Over 1,200 FHS students are going to be given the opportunity for an Hour of Code. It's a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code" and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator.
Signing onto Code.org during their math class, students are being initiated into the art of programming by partaking in game-like, self-directed tutorials in which they learn basic algorithms, conditional statements, and loops. Students will advance through the tutorials as skills are mastered.
