To mark Computer Science Education Week, held Dec. 9-15, Westhampton Beach Elementary School students each spent an hour learning code through activities provided by Code.org.

Known as the Hour of Code, the experience gives students an opportunity to explore coding as the basis for a possible career in computer science. It also allows them to hone their problem-solving skills and celebrate the birthday of computing pioneer Grace Murray Hopper. 

Students also showed their eagerness for coding by participating in spirit days throughout the week, wearing bright colors, jeans, sneakers and Westhampton Beach spirit wear to school.
