Hour of Code December 14 at 11:00 AM

KCSD Hour of Code Flyer 2019

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.

But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Only 45% of all high schools teach computer science.

That’s why our entire school district is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, on Saturday, December 14th at 11:00am in the Stanton Media Center, during Computer Science Education Week. More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that the Kent City School District is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to volunteer, reach out to local media, share the news on social media channels and consider hosting additional Hour of Code events in the community.

This is a chance to change the future of education in Kent!
