WCSD Sponsors an Hour of Code
Secondary Schools encourage students to learn coding
What is the Hour of Code?
The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. One-hour tutorials are available in over 40 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104. With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. Over 100 partners joined together to support this movement. Last year, every Apple Store in the world hosted an Hour of Code and even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.
When? December 9th
Where? John Jay, Roy C. Ketcham, Wappingers Junior High and Van Wyck.
Join us in the library during your study hall or lunch period to participate in the Hour of Code. Here you can learn the basics of computer science by using code to play a game, develop a game, or even learn what it takes to make an app. No experience is necessary. Come and have fun.
