This morning, 400 junior high-aged girls came to the ALC to participate in a girls-only field trip to promote the Hour of Code and the CodeGirl movie. The girls participated by watching half of the film and participating in coding in the individual computer labs.

Hour of Code has arrived!

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 school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
