Hour of Code

By: Lindsey Dunn, Instructional Technology Specialist

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. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning 
computer science, and fewer students are studying it than a decade ago.

That’s why our school joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour 
of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14). Last year, 15 million 
students tried computer science in one week. This year, we joined students 
worldwide to reach 100 million students!

Our Hour of Code is a statement that the Morse School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills.
