Hour of Code is Coming!
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, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
Our Hour of Code is a statement that William Dandy Middle School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your chidlren, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge.
This is a chance to change the future of education!
