Students throughout Waverly Park Elementary School in the Lynbrook Public School District crafted lines of code during the Hour of Code activity on Dec. 6.

The Hour of Code is a global computer science event that empowers students to create the world of tomorrow. Using their laptops, students tackled a coding goal to be completed within an hour. In Josie Botwinick’s fifth grade class, students selected a virtual character and applied code to animate its limbs, head and body to dance to a tune. Some projects included multiple characters and animation techniques to make the dance pop. The collaborative platform used allowed students to stand at the front of the class and present their animation to their peers.
