The time for technology is now. 

Or, at least in the West Morris Regional High School District, it is NAO.

Students at both schools are taking part in the Hour of Code as part Computer Science Education week from Dec. 9 to 12, where they will have designated time to learn more about coding activities and technology.

Mendham started the week off a bit early by working with a NAO robot on Friday, Dec. 6. The device is a robot that enables students to program it with actions through the use of coding, according to teq.com.

Students at West Morris Central will also have the opportunity to work with the robot at the end of Computer Science Education week, said Erica Hartman, the district’s supervisor of technology integration.

At Mendham, freshmen and sophomores have the opportunity to stay after school throughout the week to work on and learn about coding. At Central, all freshman and sophomore math classes will participate in the Hour of Code during one of their classes sometime between Monday and Friday.
