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 less students are studying it than a decade ago.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, the week of and after Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 4-15). This year, we're joining students worldwide to try computer science!
Our Hour of Code is a statement that Frederick Douglass Elementary is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge.See http://hourofcode.com/us for details, and help spread the word.
