Rep. Reick Celebrates “Hour of Code” with Prairiewood Elementary School Students

This week I visited Prairiewood Elementary School in Woodstock and watched an incredibly bright group of students engage in computerized learning activities in observance of the international “Hour of Code,” which is part of Computer Science Education Week.

I was impressed (and admittedly a bit humbled) as I watched students program games and do other levels of computer code work. It was a bridge activity, with high school students from Woodstock High School on hand to lend additional expertise. I appreciated the invitation and the opportunity to observe this unique learning activity which brought older and younger students together in the classroom.
