Do you know about The Hour of Code?
It is part of Computer Computer Science Education Week, “an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science.” Each year, it is held during the week of computing superstar Admiral Grace Murray Hopper’s birthday.
Spearheaded by the folks at a non-profit called Code.org, The Hour of Code is intended to get kids like you excited about learning more about computers, technology — and designing a great future for yourself. And by becoming a computer scientist, you can help build a better world for everyone else, too!
There all kinds of fun ways to participate this year. Check out these great ideas for building games on your own computer or iPhone — and even check out some ideas for learning computer science basics without plugging in.
But don’t just take our word for why you should do it. Hear from President Obama about why should participate!
