Celebrate Computer Science with an Hour of Code December 7-13

Nov 13, 2015

hour-of-code-logoThe Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics through self-guided one-hour tutorials. Anybody can host an Hour of Code anytime, but there is a grassroots campaign goal for tens of millions of students to try an Hour of Code during December 7-13, in celebration of Computer Science Education Week. Several Wyoming schools have signed up, and there is still time for your school or library to participate.

There are options for every age and experience-level, from kindergarten and up. There are even tutorial options that do not require computer or internet access.

Instructions, planning resources and promotional materials are all available. The Hour of Code is organized by Code.org, a public 501c3 non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color.
