Hour of Code begins this week

It’s here! A week dedicate to getting students to appreciate and –frankly fall in love with– code!

I began with a 5th and 6th grade class, who wished we had more than 35 minutes of class time, as they got elbow-deep in coding.

Also, a relevant sidebar to this is the push by Mark Zuckerberg, who was featured in TIME, last week. If, as the Zuckerberg’s and the Gates’ of this world get the rest of the world online, imagine all those tens of thousands of coding jobs that will come available, as our students graduate!
