#HourOfCode @ SISCL


As part of our STEM and SEP Jr. Computer Science for All initiatives, we are excited to announce our participation in The Hour of Code, a world wide effort to celebrate computer science and demystify “code” to show that anybody can learn the basics. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide. The program fosters the belief that every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science to nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.

At SISCL, every student will have the opportunity to take part in an Hour of Code activity hosted by our SEP Jr. teachers during Computer Science Education Week, from December 9th-13th.
