Microsoft Programmer Teaches Southport Elementary Students to Code

SOUTHPORT, Fla. - Each year Bay District Schools celebrate 'Hour of Code.'

It's a week long initiative to get students excited about about technology and coding. On Thursday Southport students learned from a coding expert.

Chris Donlan visited the school. He is a partner technical strategist at Microsoft. He led the students through various coding activities using the software Minecraft including basic coding principals such as loops and functions to complete a series of puzzles.

"I think it's jobs of the future in technology. People are going to have to know how to code and it's going to be a requirement for a lot of careers within and even not in technology," said Donlan.

Each grade at Southport rotated through activities for an hour at a time.
