Students at Seltice Elementary are participating in the Hour of Code this week, an international event that encourages students to learn about coding. The one-hour introduction to computer science is designed to demystify coding for students and get them interested in technology careers.

Started by Code.org in 2013, the event has grown to include more than 100 million students from more than 180 countries.

As a participating school, Seltice Elementary has entered a contest to win a live video chat with Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. To get a shot a winning a chat with a celebrity guest, students must create an app, game or design with Code.org.

For the second-graders, this week was their first time coding. Third, fourth and fifth grade students will also take a crack at the challenge throughout the week.
