The Hour of Code is AWESOME...
Each December all students learn how to CODE in the Computer Lab!
We live in a world surrounded by technology. Information, commerce, communication, and entertainment all rely on computers. But only a tiny fraction of us learn computer science, the basics of how computers work, or how to create software, apps, or websites. Computer Science provides a foundation for virtually any career and everybody can benefit from learning the basics.
Programming literacy is going to be key to your child’s future.
The largest learning event in history
While your children will have the opportunity to participate in school, I encourage you to participate, in two ways:
1) As a student - set aside an hour in December to learn the basics yourself either at home or work.
2) In your community - the Hour of Code campaign isn’t only for students, and you can help introduce others in your community to computer science - whether in an after-school club, a church, a veterans group, etc.
