“I think it’s really cool that we have the opportunity to do this,” said Dean Trujillo, a fifth-grader from Southmoor Elementary School.

He and 39 of his classmates had the opportunity to visit the University of Denver (DU) in December to take part in the Hour of Code.

The global event — which takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week — is designed to reach millions of kids, showing them what it takes to create the programs and apps they use every day and teaches them that computer science is fun and creative.

“Having this opportunity for the kids to get outside the school and try something out and have the interest in computer science is fantastic,” said Jonathan Miller, enrichment coordinator and teacher at Southmoor.
