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. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.
That is why this December Nextech is joining the rest of the world in celebrating Hour of Code, a global movement to connect K-12 students to computer science education, demystify coding and show that anyone can learn the basics.
If you are a parent or guardian to a child in Kindergarten through the 6th grade and, please join us on Saturday, December 10th for a community wide Hour of Code. During the event, Nextech will introduce students to the basic concepts of computer science and give all attendees the opportunity to generate their first lines of code using Lightbot, an educational app that teaches basic coding concepts. As with any Hour of Code activity, no previous coding experience.
Space is limited to 30 students per session so please reserve your spot now by clicking the Select a Time button above! This isn't a drop-off event, it is meant for parents to work alongside their child(ren). Registration closes on Friday, December 2nd.
