Kids in elementary, middle or high school are invited to participate in the annual code.org Hour of Code at the CNM STEMulus Center. Bring a laptop, enjoy some refreshments and learn computer coding basics with us.
Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet, but fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented in computer science classes, and in the tech industry. Good news is, we’re on our way to changing this.
With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code. President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.
Participants should bring a tablet or laptop with them if they have one. However, a few may be available to lend if participants do not have access to one. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to borrow a laptop or tablet.
Kids of all ages are welcome to participate and must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Space is limited, sign up today!
