During Computer Science Education Week, Chestatee High School students participated in a worldwide program by learning about coding via online tutorials at www.code.org.
By registering for the Hour of Code, the school was automatically entered for a $10,000 drawing. One school in each state received the award. Out of around 100 schools in Georgia eligible for the prize, Chestatee won.
Darrell Skogman, a math and programming teacher at the high school, plans to purchase seven laptops, three Android tablets, and a 3-D printer with the money.
