Adorable Kindergarteners excelling with Candy Quest!
Ended an amazing week of code with the youngest of minds! Great chatter among students as one Kindergarten girl figured out a level of Candy Quest with "I got it…run, run, jump is the code" Thank you Hour of Code for empowering the mindset of all ages!#hourofcode @gotynker pic.twitter.com/BvTYiN9p8X

The smile at the end of the video when this kindergartner completes her code is the best. “They caught on so quickly!”
Our #kindergarten students took part in #HourofCode today using @gotynker They caught on so quickly! (The self correction and HUGE smile when she completes the code makes me so happy!) We are looking forward to more coding in our future! #flcschool @STARCatholic pic.twitter.com/KjUuyHrp2t
