Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries during Computer Science Education Week December 7 - 13, 2020. Computer Science Education Week is a great time to help students and staff understand computer science is fun, creative, and everyone can code!
Please share your Hour of Code event on social media using the hashtags #CSforGood #CSforGWAEA, #CSforIA, and #HourOfCode.
Two Ways to participate in 2020!
All Grant Wood AEA 4th Grade Teachers
All Grant Wood AEA Educators & Administrators
We are collaborating with ICR Iowa and the IT Sector board to ensure that every 4th grade classroom in GWAEA can host an Hour of Code event with an Industry Partner!
Industry partners will briefly share about their jobs in Information Technology and then assist 4th grade teachers with hosting an Hour of Code with your students. You can host your Hour of Code face to face or virtually, depending on your needs.
Please sign-up below by November 20th, 2020.
We're asking all Grant Wood AEA classrooms to register their 2020 Hour of Code events with us at bit.ly/GWAEAHoC20 in addition to registering with Code.org at https://hourofcode.com/us.
We'll send your classroom/building a poster to let others know you plan to host an hour of code as well as a completion certificate. We'll also send stickers for every student and staff member that participate.
Please register by December 1, 2020.
