Learning the basics early

BISMARCK, N.D. - Students in Bismarck were practicing computer coding today.

Even Mrs. Arnold's second graders gave it a shot for an hour.

Bobcat company engineers showed students how they use coding and computer programming in their work.

Students wrote the code for the video game Minecraft.

“I made it to level 10 and it probably took me 10 minutes, maybe 15,” said Sam Bordke, second grader.

Teachers say students who code learn to use problem solving and creativity.
