Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented. Good news is, our school district is on our way to change this.
In one week last year, 15 million students tried computer science! Computer science was on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. President Obama, Shakira and Ashton Kutcher all kicked off the Hour of Code with videos. Over 100 partners came together to support this movement.
Now the Hour of Code movement is aiming for 100 million students.
That’s why every one of the students enrolled in Nikki Browning's computer classes at Jackson County Middle School are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Dec. 8-14. During this event JCMS students will be demonstrating their ability to use the Hour of Code resources to learn computer programming.
