Hour of Code Week

Coming Soon Dec. 5th-9th

Computer science opens more doors for students than any other discipline in today’s world. Learning even the basics will help students in virtually any career—from architecture to zoology. Just as we teach students how to dissect a frog, or how electricity works, it’s important for every 21st century student to have a chance to design an app or an algorithm, or learn how the Internet works.

90% of parents want schools to teach computer programming, and students love it

A 2015 Gallup poll found that 9 out of 10 parents want schools to teach computer science – so our children grow up not just using technology but learning how to create it. In fact, among low-income families, the majority of parents and teachers believe the computer science should be required for students to learn!

A survey of high school students shows that computer science ranks among students’ favorite subjects, behind only graphic design and performing arts. Now that computing is the #1 source of all new wages in the U.S., it’s important that every child should have access to learn computer science in schools.
