Hour Of Code

For the third year in a row, Brockton is participating in the Hour of Code: a global movement by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries through a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming.  
 
“Why do students who begin programming early become so successful? Students who learn to program early in life gain a deeper and more complete understanding of the logic and advanced thinking behind programming. Like learning a language early in life, learning and practicing this type of thinking early in development actually influences a child’s brain as it is still developing. This is why early learners have experienced such boundless success in this field (think Gates, Zuckerberg, Jobs,…the list goes on and on).
 
We all know the future of our world is digital…so what can be more important to a child’s future than to provide a child now with a rich foundation in these integral thinking and problem solving skills that will be so valuable for success in his or her future world” (CodeRev, Inspiring Kids To Code).
 
How can students and parents continue learning computer programming beyond the hour of code?  Check out this website for lots of other great activities.
