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 less students are studying it than a decade ago.
That’s why our entire community is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The HOUR OF CODE, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 9-15). More than 800 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
The goal is to to bring together organizations, companies, teachers, as well as children from local schools and their parents, to make them aware of IT opportunities in the global world, and to promote IT Education in Cincinnati.
Honoring the memory of our volunteer, Mr. Woody Barker, who passed away last year, we'll have a "Woody Barker Tech Challenge" for the students.
