Free Workshop and Save the Date for the Hour of Code

Hour of Code 2014

The 2014 Hour of Code will take place during Computer Science Education Week from December 8 - 14, 2014.  

The Hour of Code is a one hour introduction to Computer Science for students of all ages. You don't have to be a computer whiz to promote or host an Hour of Code. (But if you are, that's great!) There are options for all age and experience levels from kindergarten and up! Host an event at your school: hourofcode.com/us/resources

Here's what happened during last year's Hour of Code:
  • More girls tried computer science than in the last 70 years
  • 15 million students worldwide learned an Hour of Code
FREE Workshop for Elementary teachers: Code.org is offering a FREE 1-day teacher workshop for elementary teachers, library media specialists, administrators, technology teachers, after-school providers and home-school teachers. 

Attendees receive the free curriculum AND can register to receive supplies needed to run the "unplugged" lessons in the classroom. In addition, a light lunch will be provided and attendees will leave with a "swag bag".

Two workshops are currently scheduled:

10/25/2014 -- Maple Street School, Contoocook, NH (Click to Register)
11/15/2014 -- Maple Street School, Contoocook, NH (Click to Register)
