Hour of Code 2018

The Hour of Code this year will be from December 3 to December 7, 2018.

The Ysleta District will be participating this year

The challenge, should you accept it, will be for every student in our campus to code for at least 1 hour during this week. The hour can be spread out all week or you can do it all at once. It is up to you!

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts.

Please follow this agenda to introduce what the Hour of Code is.
