Dodgen PTSA Hour of Code Family Challenge

The 'Hour of Code™' is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week[csedweek.org] and Code.org[code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.

 

If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. 100 million students have now discovered how accessible and fun computer science can be by doing just one Hour of Code. Last year, our Dodgen students logged 1409 hours!

 

Try a one-hour tutorial designed for all ages in over 45 languages. Join millions of students and teachers in over 180 countries starting with an Hour of Code.

 

Starting Monday, December 3rd, visit HourOfCode.com to start a coding tutorial. Then complete our online form to log your hours and win daily prizes (Gift Cards) plus a Math class party! All family members of Dodgen students are invited to participate and log hours to help their student’s class win! This is a great opportunity to share quality screen time with your student and show them that learning is a lifelong endeavor.
