An Hour of Code - Career Tech Ed for All Ages

posted Nov 4, 2014, 1:45 PM by gjones@modoccoe.k12.ca.us

Launched in 2013, Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. We believe computer science and computer programming should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.

Join the Hour of Code December 8 - 14, 2014. More than 46 million students have tried an Hour of Code.

Here is a LINK to a video that introduces basic programming for beginners. Following the video is a simple 20-step coding exercise using Angry Birds.
