The week of December 8 - 14, 2014 is designated as Computer Science Education Week. This annual program is dedicated to inspiring students to take an interest in computer science. Schools are encouraged to participate in an Hour of Code and Holly Grove Elementary is doing just that! As an introduction to computer science, students are working in Code.org in their computer specials classes with Mrs. Konx-Ingle.
The Hour of Code is just one step in our journey to learn more about how technology works and to hone those thinking skills necessary for jobs in the future.
Technology truly touches every part of our lives and if students can become inspired to create technology, they'll be able to change the world. As President Obama said, "Don't just play on your phone, program it."
