Once again, Queen Anne Elementary is joining in the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week. Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students!
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.
Our Hour of Code aligns directly with Queen Anne Elementary commitment to 21st century learning. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. We need your help to make this event successful and bring coding into our children’s lives.
In the next week we will send out link to sign up to volunteer to help on Thursday, December 11th. We’ll need morning, afternoon, and all day volunteers. Last year we had about 20 volunteers, this year we are shooting for 50! It’s amazing how excited our kids are to code—We hope you’ll have a chance to see it first hand and help support their discovery. We know that many parents cannot attend and in the coming weeks we’ll send other ways that you can get involved and support the effort.
