Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. The good news is, we’re on our way to change this.
In one week last year, 15 million students tried computer science! Computer science was on the 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.
Calcey hosted an Hour of Code session for 50 Grade 5 students from Sri Sumangala Boys’ School and joined the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Dec. 8-14.
The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 others, is a statement that today’s generation of students is ready to learn critical skills for 21st-century success.
Enthusiastic students arrived eager to learn and supported by the Calcey team, they took their first steps into the world of computer science.
The fun-filled Hour of Code session at Calcey was topped off with some refreshments and the students received a Certificate of Completion.
Thanks to all the Sri Sumangala Boys’ School students, teachers, parents and of course our Calcey Team for making this event a success!
