An Hour of Code

An Hour of Code

Next week is Computer Science Education Week, and to celebrate many are participating in an Hour of Code. The focus is to identify how computers and code is almost everywhere from the obvious mobile devices to your toaster and microwave and to “demystify” code. Some one needs to create these devices and develop code.  yet computer science is not taught in many schools.

The hour of code has activities for student as young as 6 and even activities that do not require a computer but demonstrate computational thinking and logic.  I encourage you to take a look and participate no matter what subject you teach.

While you are exploring here are some other resources to check out.
