Participate in the
Hour of Code™
Hour of Code is a global movement by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.
Can we help you host an Hour of Code™?
Between Dec. 6-12, ten percent of students around the world will celebrate Computer Science Education Week by doing an Hour of Code at their school. It’s an opportunity for every child to learn how the technology around us works.
Hexagon-STEM would love to help your organization run an Hour of Code event. We can help teachers or mentors host an Hour of Code in their classrooms or location (we don’t need computers!) or if you would like to host a school assembly, we can arrange for a speaker to talk about how technology works and what it’s like to be an Engineer.
The students will create their own apps or games they can show their parents, and we’ll also print Hour of Code certificates they can bring home. Additionally, it’s fun! With interactive, hands-on activities, students will learn computational thinking skills in an attainable way.
Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on this planet. But only 45% of all high schools teach computer science. The good news is, we’re on our way to change that! If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history - more than 100 million students around the world have tried an Hour of Code. Even leaders like President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote their first lines of code as part of the campaign.
Let us know if you’d like to schedule some time to talk about how your school or organization can participate.
