• High school students explore Hour of Code Week

    Some students at Carroll County High School began programming computers on Monday, and they have not stopped yet. Part of the annual Hour of Code Week, Lynn Eaglin’s business and technology students are exploring ways to make computers do their bidding: writing code, in other words.

    “I think every student should get some exposure to computer science,” Eaglin said. “It forces them to think in a slightly different way, and it’s a skill that you can apply in life in general, whether you end up in a computer science-related field or not.”
