2019 Hour of Code

Delran Township Schools & The Delran STEM Ecosystem Alliance

Why do we celebrate the Hour of Code?

Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. Even though Delran offers computing K-12, not all students have the same exposure to coding. Watch this film below, starring Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, will.i.am, Chris Bosh, Jack Dorsey, Tony Hsieh, Drew Houston, Gabe Newell, Ruchi Sanghvi, Elena Silenok, Vanessa Hurst, and Hadi Partovi. Directed by Lesley Chilcott, executive producers Hadi and Ali Partovi. If creativity is showing the world what is unique about you, making something out of nothing, what will you create? You don't have to change the world, but you can. You don't have to have fun, but you can. Just give it a try and see where it takes you!

What Most Schools Don't Teach

HAVE YOU TRIED CODING? HAVE YOU TAKEN COMPUTER PROGRAMMING?

EVERY student should learn what an algorithm is, how to make an app, and how the internet works, just like you do about photosynthesis, algebra and health education.

BE SURE TO REGISTER FOR CP COMPUTER PROGRAMMING.

Delran Township Schools & The Delran STEM Ecosystem Alliance

In 2016, Delran STEM Ecosystem Alliance became one of five New Jersey ecosystems, managed by the NJ STEM Pathways Network. In 2017, we were accepted into the national community of STEM Learning Ecosystems, and we are currently one of 84 internationally recognized groups focusing on networking and partnerships to create a strong STEM workforce.

A collaboration of K-12, higher education, business/industry, and community partners working together, our mantra is “STEM for ALL,” with a focus on underrepresented populations. The goal is to develop skills in future innovators and creators who will contribute to the economy of New Jersey.
