Hour of Code @ MHS- Friday, December 11th

Computer Science Education Week is upon us and our friends in the newly formed MHS Technology Club plan to highlight this event by hosting an Hour of Code event.  The Hour of Code is a worldwide initiative meant to introduce students to computer science by having them engage in an hour of programming.

Members of the Technology Club will be in the MHS Presentation Center throughout the day Friday, December 11th and will set up stations where students/faculty/staff can jump into a variety of coding activities using Chromebooks.  They plan to have a demo coding station during most blocks, as well as videos and information about computer science.  They are very excited to spread the word about how much fun computer science can be!

Events like this help provide more students with the opportunity to learn computer science.  Beyond the applicable problem-solving skills that are part of computer science, students who get involved with these types of activities will be better prepared for success in the 21st century workforce.
