PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
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 depend on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. That is why the Engineering Student Council at the University of Iowa is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week on December 4, 2018, from 6:00pm - 7:00pm. Our Hour of Code program is among one of thousands of programs across the nation making a statement that your son/daughter between ages 8-11 is ready to learn these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your kids, we want to make our Hour of Code an exciting time for parents and their children to learn and explore computer technology and the fundamentals of coding.
