December 7-13, 2015 is Computer Science Education Week, which recognizes the transformative role of computing and the need to bolster computer science at all educational levels. Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. Basic programming activities help nurture creativity and problem solving skills. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any future career path. Computer programming jobs are growing 3x
faster than students entering the field. Yet fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years
ago. 90% of K-12 schools in the United States don’t even teach it.

Join the celebration by participating in the Hour of Code, a global movement recruiting tens of millions of students in 180+ countries to dive into coding and try an Hour of Code. Find more information on how you and your students can get involved at hourofcode.com
