On Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, Hays-Porter High-Tech Elementary School hosted a local Kickoff to "Hour of Code". Similar kick-offs were done all over the world as part of the "Computer Science Education Week" (

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 45 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104.

The event at Hays-Porter was a great event thanks to the support from all our friends, especially:

  • Families Forward (Ms. Deborah Allsop, Victoria Matchett, Richara Richardson)
  • Cincinnati Museum Center (Claire Pollock and her team)

The NAO humanoid robot was definitely a hit of the evening - kids just loved it!!! :)
