Hour of Code
Countdown to MJS Hour of Code
The MJS Hour of Code is this week, January 11-15th! Middle School students will all be coding on Wednesday, 1/13 during advisory. Students in grades 2-4 will be participating during one of their technology class times.
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 hinge on understanding how technology works. That's why we are participating in Hour of Code; a global movement to introduce and reinforce computer science to students.
See http://hourofcode.com/us for more info on the movement.
