EUGENE, Ore. -- Students at Adams Elementary School in Eugene took part in the Hour of Code, a nation-wide program that gets kids excited about computers and technology.

Kindergartners through fifth graders made a virtual dance party. The students chose music and coded the actions of the characters they created.

SheerID, a local technology company, sent experts to help.

“I’m coding and putting blocks in places,” student Alison Linsley said during the event. “I like making characters do stuff.”

The program gets kids thinking about potentially getting into coding as a career.

“This is an opportunity to get them on there and working on a meaningful project that is fun and engaging, and maybe opens the doors for some of our kids and keeps them excited about school,” Principal Kevin Gordon said.

Schools will have another Hour of Code in spring, and parents will be invited to learn coding alongside kids.
