LANL Director Thom Mason Works With Students During Hour Of Code Project At Tony E. Quintana Elementary 

Los Alamos National Laboratory Director Thom Mason volunteered for the Hour Of Code project Friday at Tony E. Quintana Elementary in Española. The program was presented to the combined 6th grade classes of Nancy Martinez and Danita Quintana. This program provides a one-hour introduction to computer science designed to demystify ‘code’ and show that anyone can learn the basics. Laboratory volunteers Aimee Hungerford and Hari Khalsa have been working with local schools on the initiative since 2015. This year, they received requests from 25 schools and 65 teachers from across northern New Mexico requesting volunteers to lead their classrooms through the introductory programing exercise.
