Computer Science Education Week: Hour of Code

December 12, 2013 - Posted in Palmetto Scene by A. Randall

Did you know December 9-15 is Computer Science Education Week all across the nation? Anyone from children to adults can learn how to write code. The hands-on learning tool, “Hour of Code”, offers students the opportunity to try computer science for one hour. Over 10 million have learned an "Hour of Code" and the numbers continue to grow. 

The Deputy Superintendent Division of School Effectiveness with the South Carolina Department of Education, Charmeka Childs, says, “ We would like as many South Carolina Students to participate in the “Hour of Code” as possible. It really works toward demystifying coding or programming, which we think is important for this growing industry.”
