Hour of Code is Coming to Elkmont, AL: Join Us Virtually for the Fun!

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this.

In one week last year, 15 million students tried computer science! Computer science was on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. President Obama, Shakira and Ashton Kutcher all kicked off the Hour of Code with videos. Over 100 partners came together to support this movement.

Now the Hour of Code movement is aiming for 100 million students.

That’s why every one of the 3rd and 4th grade DPI (Digital Passport Initiative) students at Elkmont High School are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Dec. 8-12. BYOD students in grades 5-12 are encouraged to participate as well.

Elkmont invites schools from all over the world to join us via Google Hangouts or Skype.  Just click HERE or complete the embedded Google Form below so that we can connect our schools for Hour of Code!
