Volunteer Next Time

The Hour of Code was a very successful initiative and we will be doing much more in 2015.  Please volunteer below to get on our list of volunteers for next time…


Volunteer to Teach an Hour of Code












Organized by the Computing in the Core coalition and Code.org, CSEdWeek is held in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).

What is Hour of Code

It’s a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator. It is a self-guided activity that every student, in every classroom, can do. No experience needed.

Why Hour of Code

Computer science is a foundational field for every 21st century career or field of study. Learning the basics of computer science prepares students for a world that is increasingly dominated by technology. Research shows that students who study computer science also perform better at math.

Besides, computer science is where the jobs are. More than 50% of all jobs in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) are computing jobs. Some other stats:

  • Computer science is one of the highest-paid college degree for new graduates.
  • Computer programming jobs are growing at two times the national average — but there aren’t enough graduates to fill these jobs.
  • Nine out of 10 K-12 schools do not offer computer programming classes.
  • In 35 out of 50 states, computer science does not even count toward high school graduation.
