Next week is Computer Science Education Week. In an effort to spread the message about the importance of computer science, Code.org started The Hour of Code last year. It was an unbelievable success world wide. This year is the second Hour of Code and will be even bigger!!
As a school site we have signed our entire site up to participate. That means all of our students and all of our staff members will participate. We have dedicated to participating during Advisory on Tuesday and Thursday, but you can do more with the rest of your classes if you want to! For those of you that may be asking the question, "Why should we participate in the Hour of Code?" or "How is computer science important to my students?" Here are a few answers from the Code.org website and co-founder Hadi Partovi.
