Students Celebrate Computer Science Education Week!

Prairie students in 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades had the chance to celebrate Computer Science Education week by working on some Hour of Code activities during their lunch recesses. Students worked together in teams to get Sphero Mini robots and Code and Go Mice robots through mazes, explored coding commands for the Sphero Indi robots to complete race courses and completed online coding challenges.
