Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. If you’ve heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.
With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code. President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.
This year, let’s make it even bigger. I’m asking you to join in for the Hour of Code 2016. Please get involved with an Hour of Code event during Computer Science Education Week, December 5-11.
This Saturday, the Kent Girl Coders will host the annual Hour of Code, an international event celebrating Computer Science Education Week. All students in grades 3 through 12 who have an interest in computers, coding and apps are invited to join us on Saturday, December 10th at 1:00pm at the Roosevelt High School Media Center. More information and a sign-up form are available at kentschools.net/code. Space is limited. Thank you for your continued support of our students.
