Hour of Code Week 12/8-12/14 - "Don't just consume things, create things."- President Obama

This is one of the coolest weeks of the year!  What?!?!?  You haven't heard of the Hour of Code Week?  Well, let me tell you all about it. 

Launched in 2013,® 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.

There are so many awesome and fun activities to help your child (or you) learn the basics of coding. Check out the site below for walk-throughs and more!
