Hour of Code

Hour of Code Logo

Did you know that computing is the #1 source of wages in the U.S.? There are more than 500,000 computing jobs open nationwide, but last year only 42,969 computer science students graduated into the workforce.  To raise awareness of the possibilities and to build interest in computer science, students in the Sioux Falls School District are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 5-11).  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.

Librarians across the district are coordinating activities to promote the Hour of Code. At Washington High School, female technology professionals from Citibank and EROS will talk to students about their work, encourage them to consider computer science as a profession, and assist students as they complete the Hour of Code activities.  At Robert Frost Elementary, all students in grades K-5 will engage in coding activities.  Students in grades 3-5 will delve into the Minecraft activities that teach coding.

Anybody can learn.  Check out The Hour of Code.
