"Hour of Code"



Last week students from all over the world participated in the "Hour of Code", a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Code.org began in 2013 with the goal of expanding access to computer science, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color.

Our district had students in every school who participated in “Hour of Code”. All the resources and materials are available, free of charge, on the Code.org website. These resources include self-guided tutorials using games such as Minecraft, Star Wars and Frozen. Code.org reaches students where they are, at their skill-level, in their schools and in ways that inspire students to keep learning. For more information, visit https://code.org/learn.

Check back with us in the New Year for information on a visitor from Microsoft who shared information about coding, his expertise and desire to inspire students to learn code.
