The “Hour of Code” was implemented at all campus computer labs last week as part of Computer Science Education Week. Computer Science Education Week was founded as a call to action to raises awareness about the need to elevate computer science education at all levels and to underscore the critical role of computing in all careers.

More than 4,000 students in grades Kindergarten through 5 participated throughout the week.

The “Hour of Code” is a global movement by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries through a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming. The one-hour tutorials are available in over 45 languages. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide.

Elementary schools took part in the “Hour of Code” for the third straight year. The “Hour of Code” is one of the largest learning events in history throughout this week around the world.
