Thirteen schools in the Near North District School Board are participating in the global movement for computer science. Britt Public School was involved last year and now twelve other schools are involved for this year including Land of Lakes Public School in Burk’s Falls and Sundridge Centennial Public School. This week, students will join other from around the world to participate in the Hour of Code which is a project by, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation across the globe. Participating schools have organized a variety of activities from math class activities to a lunch hour club to events organized by special guests.
