An Hour of Code Comes to the King

An Hour of Code Comes to the King
Posted on 11/19/2014
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 is joining 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're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students!

Our Hour of Code is a statement that the King School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. During the week of December 8th Lindsey Dunn, King School’s Instructional Technology Specialist, along with a group of parent volunteers and AP computer science high school students will be working on computer coding skills with King students from k through grade 5.

This is a chance to change the future of education in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
