Hour of Code
Linkedin tells us that Dell Technology produced a report that says "85 percent of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven't even been invented yet." With so many future possibilities for students now, it is important for students to learn how to think outside the box and be open to new challenges and learning.
"The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. (Hour of Code website)" At Evans, we will be introducing the students to coding throughout the year through our makerspace area. Students will also have the chance in December to try their hand at some other computer based programs that teach students to code through challenges.
