St. Francis Robotics Club: Hour of Code (Tuesday, December 9th)
We live in a world surrounded by technology. 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. Yet, only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science; fewer students are studying it than a decade ago.
That's why our entire school is invited to join 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 St. Francis - Salesian College Prep 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. If you would like to participate in this year's event please sign up here: LINK This year's event will be held in the LRC from 3-4 p.m. on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. Sign-up will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
This is a chance to change the future of education in our community!
