Pod Squad will hold its fifth Hour of Code event in the library to give all students and staff a chance to learn programming skills

However, this year the hour turns into a Week of Code that will start on Dec. 17 and extend to Dec. 20. Students can participate during One Lunch or an It’s Academic block. Some of the featured activities include learning how to use Ozobot Robots, a Dash robot, and Sphero Spark Robots.

“It’s a lot of fun seeing everybody being really interested in [coding],” said senior Pod Squad member Ethan Schroeder. “There’s a lot of things that people didn’t know they could do before they even tried.”
