Hour of Code

is coming back to Charlottesville!

What's an Hour of Code?

It's a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code" and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator.

Last year, at least 9 local schools participated in the Hour of Code!

Buford Middle School, Charlottesville High School, Henley Middle School, Jack Jouett Middle School, Cale Elementary School, Stony Point Elementary School, Walton Middle School, Community Public Charter School, St. Anne's Belfield School

Plus local organizations Computers4Kids & HackCville hosted Hour of Code activities!

Can we double that number this year? Please contact kim@tech-girls.org if your school or organization should be added to the list.
