Students at Canyon Lake Elementary Learn Basic Coding

Fifth grade students at Canyon Lake Elementary School are learning basic coding skills, reports KOTA TV News. Through a program named Hopscotch, students drag and drop specific features into apps of their own creation.

Jason Bierle, who is teaching coding to his class, was inspired by a technology conference he attended. There is also a great need for computer programmers, who can make a salary around $53,000 in South Dakota.
