MILTON, Ga. – In celebration of Computer Science Education Week Dec. 9 to Dec. 15, 2013, students in the TAG (Talented and Gifted) program at Crabapple Crossing Elementary School participated in an “Hour of Code” campaign.

The founders of Facebook, Apple and Microsoft, along with the president and many other celebrities are featured in videos supporting this campaign to get 10 million students to try one hour of computer science coding.

“Hour of Code” was initiated at Crabapple Crossing by Betsy Geurin, TAG department chair. The school also made sure that all students were exposed to the various coding jobs available and engaged students in learning the basics of computer science by having them help write code for 20 puzzles.
