From the family at Hour of Code please read below:
Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. In one week, 15 million students tried computer science! The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Sign up to host an Hour of Code this December 8-14 during Computer Science Education Week and help reach 100 million students by the end of the year.
We’ll also send you these awesome posters to hang in your school. If you did this last year, you know that students loved it. Try to go even bigger, get every student at your school participating. We’ll have new tutorials for all ages and ones that require no computer at all. Watch the video, and ask all educators to give it a shot. Every participating educator will receive thank you gifts. 50 classrooms will win tech chats with special guest speakers. And in each state, one participating school will win $10,000 in technology for their school! Add your school to the map, go to http://hourofcode.com
