The Hour of Code
Computer Science Education Week is December 7-13.
Why learn to code?
It's difficult for technology companies to find enough qualified people to fill the jobs they have. Most middle and high schools do not currently teach computer programming. A substantial number of successful coders are largely self-taught. Coding is a good way for interested students to develop as lifelong learners.
Coding Is Fun, and . . .
