Friday, December 8th is the Hour of Code at Queen Anne Elementary!
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 hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and fewer students are studying it than a decade ago (and women account for only 12% of computer science degrees).
That’s why our entire school is again joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week. More than 100 Million Students have participated already (and our kids are among them!)
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Here’s a video to get you inspired!
This is our fifth year and the program has been such a success – inspiring students, teachers, and parents. Here’s how you can get involved!
Top 5 ways to get involved with Hour of Code (note - you don’t need to be at school for 4 of them)
We need your help! Here are the top 5 ways you can get involved with the Hour of Code!
Thank you for all your support and help as we introduce our kids to the skills they need to flourish in the 21st Century. We learn everywhere, we learn together
