Bring your own laptop or tablet.
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 depend on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Only 1 in every four schools teach computer science.
That’s why the Mustang Public Library is joining The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 5-11). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
We're offering 3 different sessions of the Hour of Code for different age groups. (If we have enough interest, we'd like to offer an Hour of Code next year for adults too.) The session times for this year are:
Ages 6 - 9 1-2 P.M.
Ages 9 - 12 2-3 P.M.
Ages 12 - 17 3-4 P.M.
on Saturday, December 10, 2016
To continue bringing programming activities to your children and the community, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to reach out to local media and share the news. This is a chance to change the future of education in Mustang. Please help us spread the word.
The Mustang Public Library is participating in an Hour of Code. The 'Hour of Code™' 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.
What if I don't have a laptop or tablet that I can bring?
If you are unable to bring one, contact Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org (or through Remind.com) for other options.
