“The ‘Hour of Codeâ„¢’ is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week[csedweek.org] and Code.org[code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.”  The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 others, is a statement that today’s generation of students are ready to learn critical skills for 21st century success.


During the week of December 7-13,

we joined students in over 180 countries in an international event that encouraged students to become engaged in computer science.

The event was called the Hour of Code.

Mrs. Abbott’s and Mrs. Bouma’s class joined ours as we worked on the laptops and iPads to learn to code.

The activities are engaging and very stimulating to math and problem solving skills.
