As part of Computer Science Education Week, Montclair Cooperative School students in third through seventh grades recently accomplished an "Hour of Code". 

The worldwide campaign launched by code.org to inspire interest in computer science amongst students is supported by Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and other technology leaders. 

During their Hour of Code, Montclair Co-op students completed computer programming tutorials designed especially for Middle and Upper school students. 

"It was a fun way to introduce the younger students to computer programming while extending what our Upper school students are already learning in their technology classes, on the robotics team, and the school's technology electives," said Perry Maione, Middle and Upper School Technology Teacher at the Montclair Co-Op.

According to code.org, 20 million students worldwide learned an "Hour of Code" in December.
