On Monday, December 4th, the Rodgers Memorial Library will be hosting an Hour of Code event! From 2:30 PM to 7:30 PM, the community room will be open to students of all ages to try their hand at over two hundred coding activities. Librarians will be on hand to help guide these young coders through their chosen activities.
Hour of Code is an initiative organized by code.org, “a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities.” Every year, schools, libraries, and other public service institutions are encouraged to participate in Computer Science Education Week by hosting an Hour of Code event. These all-ages events are meant to encourage people young and old to pursue a greater degree of understanding about technology and how it helps in our lives, as well as foster an interest in computer science for students.
