Camas students in all grades to be creating code in Hour of Code project
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and fewer students are studying it than a decade ago.
That's why our entire school district is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, which takes place during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-12). Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students!
CHS Students who are working on their Hour of Code Friday, December 12, will be allowed to use their personal devices during the Hour of Code activity.
Our participation in Hour of Code is a statement that the Camas School District is ready to teach these foundational, 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. We encourage parents to ask their students about the Hour of Code activity next week.
