“Like eating their vegetables, teaching kids to
enjoy tech at an early age could be key to their future”
The Hour of Code is a global movement by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries through a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming.
Coding is the process of writing a program to make the computer do something. Everything that is done on a computer, like websites, games, applications, word processing, videos, and photos, has been coded to do its specific feature.
Most Crossroads students pronounced the Hour of Code as ‘cool’ and ‘fun’.
