Hour of Code

National Computer Science Education Week takes place December 8-14 and focuses on introducing students to computer programming and promoting computer science careers. Hour of Code is an opportunity for every student to try computer science for one hour. Computer science is the art of blending human ideas and digital tools to increase our power. Computer scientists build things like cell phones, microwaves, computers and traffic lights. They work id different areas like making apps for phones, creating animated movies, developing video games, building robots, working on social media and so much more.

As a part of the Hour of Code celebration, Latinitas hosted computer science activities during our after-school programs. Our Latinitas were able to designing apps, learn about HTML, design their own webpage, learn computer programming and create video games. IMG_0433
