Hour of Code 2013 @ Berry College

Are You Ready For The 21st Century?

We live in a world immersed in technology. Computer Science (not “computer literacy”) underlies most innovation today, from biotechnology, manufacturing, and marketing to cinematography, healthcare, and national security. Yet the majority of U.S. schools require only that students use computers. Only a tiny fraction of American students learn the foundations of the underlying technology, or how to create software, apps, or web sites. The ability to innovate with technology is critical for students’ future success and ability to make a difference in our global society. Computer Science provides a foundation for virtually any career and every student can benefit from learning the basics.

Hour of Code 2013

This year, for Computer Science Education Week, a massive global campaign called the Hour of Code is geared up to enable 10 million students to experience an hour of programming, or coding. Programming is a critical tool for Computer Science and provides a basis to begin understanding the central role computation holds in our world today. On Monday, December 9, 2013, between 1:30pm-4:30pm, Berry College will host an Hour of Code event for students and other members of the Berry community.
