Family Coding Day
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 change 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. Even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.
That’s why the students at St. John Notre Dame School are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10). We will be kicking off Computer Science Week with a Family Coding Event on Sunday, December 3, 2017 from 1 to 3 p.m.
We are inviting you to attend our kickoff Family Coding event and to work with your children and start the activity on Sunday, December 3, 2017. Parents along with their children are iinvited to code and participate in STREAM-based community activity. We hope you'll join us. Parents must attend with their child, this is not a drop your child off event.
The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 others, is a global movement that believes the students of today are ready to learn critical skills for 21st-century success. Please join us.
