Hour of Code™ is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.
Join Mark Frederick, Chief Technology Officer with MākuSafe, and Tim Sieber, Executive Director of Tech Journey, for this free, virtual, introductory workshop. All individuals age 9 and above are welcome to participate and receive an introduction to computer science and coding in a safe, supportive environment. Registration is required.
Included in this workshop will be an overview of computer science and coding, an example application of how MākuSafe uses computer science to solve big problems and an unplugged activity using computer science to create pixel art. Students will then work independently through a self-paced coding tutorial.
A personal computer with an internet connection is required for both the Zoom virtual meeting and the self-paced coding tutorial. No prior coding experience is needed but familiarity with a computer keyboard and mouse is helpful. Parents, we encourage you to assist early readers or students who may not have experience navigating multiple windows on a computer.
