The Hour of Code!

The Hour of Code is December 7-11, 2015! Already, there are over 97,000 events in 180+ countries scheduled worldwide! Is your class or school listed?

This is an amazing event that encourages communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity - things we want for our students! Just pick one hour from the week and give it a try and see what a difference it makes!

Teachers in GSCS that participated last year reported that their students loved it so much that they continued coding as part of their everyday lessons! What a valuable asset to these students' learning!

If you need help figuring out where to start, contact Leslie or Robin, and we'll give you the support you need! Also, if you plan to participate, let us know that as well, so we can get you on our schedule to come take pictures!
