. . .that’s because I am!
It is such an exciting program:
- It’s easy: Visit the Hour of Code website for specific tutorials and instructions for putting on an hour long program that appeals to children and adults.
- It’s important: On the site, you’ll be shocked at the number of computer science jobs that go unfilled because students aren’t learning how to code. You can even find statistics for Kansas and create an infographic to share!
- It’s free: On the website, you’ll find promotional materials, videos, and complete lesson plans (scroll to “Computer Science Fundamentals: Curriculum Overview”) all for no charge!
- It’s fun: Check out some of these tutorials that star pop-culture stars, like the newest Star Wars characters, Minecraft, and Frozen, to see how engaging they are!
- And, it’s coming soon: December 7th to 13th to be exact! Any Hour of Code program that happens during Computer Science Education Week can be registered with the Hour of Code website. This will get you in the loop to receive updated information, ideas, and new tutorials!
