What is The Hour of Code?
“It’s a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator.” (Weebly.com)

Why are we participating in The Hour of Code?
-Children who learn introductory computer science show improved math scores. -90% of K-12 schools in the U.S. do not teach computer science. -Software jobs outnumber students 3-to-1. The gap is 1 million jobs over 10 years. -In many countries (including China, the United Kingdom and Australia), computer science is—or soon will be—required. -Anyone can learn the basics, starting in elementary school, but fewer than 10% of students (and just 4% of female students,3% of students of color) take computer science classes.
