A variety of hour-long tutorials will be available for students to try out the basics of computer science.Computer Science Education Week: December 9-15, 2013 This year, Code.org is launching the Hour of Code as part of the annual Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek), a celebration geared to encourage interest in the field and show that anyone can learn the basics.Today, we’re surrounded by technology. Many students have their own tablets and phones—and yet, few are learning how computers actually work. Simple computer science activities can help nurture creativity and pproblem-solvingskills. By getting a feel for computational thinking early, students will have a foundation for success in any future career path.Who Can Participate? This event is for all groups and all ages of the community, you don’t even have to be a Work In Progress member to join in the fun!
