Milton Elementary School students were among 15 million students taking part in a worldwide campaign kicked off by President Obama recently. Taking place during Computer Science Education Week, The Hour of Code was a one-hour introduction to computer programming designed to demystify code. Some excited students chose to write their first line of code for game programs such as Angry Birds.
