Hour of Code is Going Virtual, Students and Community Invited to Join

December 3, 2020

Since the first lines of code were written in the 1950s, the impact that programming language has had on mankind is undeniable. Generations of kids have jumped into coding for fun and for a career. Every year, the SASD hosts an ‘Hour of Code’ event designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. This is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries.

This year our event is going VIRTUAL and is open to all students, parents and community members. Children as young as four years old can participate. No experience is needed. Last year, we had more than 140 people attend with ages ranging from 5 years old to adults.

Hour of Code activities are self-guided tutorials available in over 30 languages. Participants need a laptop, Chromebook, smartphone, or other electronic devices. Anyone in attendance will have a chance to win great prizes sponsored by ACUITY, including Iozobot Evo Captain America Version, Avengers Hero Inventor Kit and the Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit.
