International Hour of Code Family Challenge


Dodgen's Hour of Code Family Challenge is coming up December 4-10.  Students and their families are encouraged to visit to try their hand at coding.  There are options for all ages and experience levels.  Once you complete an Hour of Code (or however much time you choose to devote), come back to this webpage to log your time.  Log one hour for each hour the student completed and one for each hour a family member completed.


Students who participate will be entered into a drawing each day and could win a fun gift card to, Barnes & Noble or Starbucks to spend over the holiday break!


The math class in each grade with the most participation will win a special treat available at Family Coding & STEAM Night on January 16.


Visit for more information about Hour of Code.  Links for logging your time for the Dodgen PTSA Hour of Code Family Challenge and more information about speakers, presentations, and options at Family Coding Night will be coming soon.


Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.

With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code. I’m asking you to join in for the Hour of Code 2017. Please get involved with an Hour of Code event during Computer Science Education Week, December 4-10, 2017.

Get the word out. Or try the Hour of Code yourself—everyone can benefit from learning the basics.
