Last year our student participated in the world wide Hour of Code event during computer science week. This year we will be doing the same but we want to take it a step further. Any students, parents, or other family members wanting to try coding please contact Mr. Husson-Matter to generate log in credentials. You can do it yourself but after our school wrote over 16000 lines of code in only 2 days we want a bigger challenge, 1 million lines of code for the year!

About the Hour of Code
What is the Hour of Code?
Why is this important?
Technology is transforming every industry on the planet. In 2015, 7 million openings in the U.S. were in occupations—including art and design—that value coding skills. But 75 percent of schools in the U.S. don't teach computer science. It’s time for us to catch up to the 21st century. We know that regardless of what our students do when they grow up, whether they go into medicine, business, politics, or the arts, knowing how to build technology will give them confidence and a competitive edge.
