Burnsville High School to host 'Hour of Code' night for K-12 families

Burnsville High School will be hosting a “Family Hour of Code” night on Dec. 7 from 6 to 8 p.m., as part of the worldwide Computer Science Education Week on Dec. 4-10.

This is the first time that BHS will be hosting a family-oriented Hour of Code event. The goal is to have District 191 families with students who are interested in computer science get together and try coding.

Coding is when you tell a computer exactly what to do by giving it step-by-step directions. It’s also known as computer programming.
