What is the Hour of Code?
The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event.

Students at Jefferson Academy and Jefferson Middle School took part in the Hour of Code during Computer Science Week (December 8-14). The Hour of Code is a grass roots campaign to give students an opportunity to try coding for one hour. According to code.org computer science jobs are growing at two times the national average. This is a great way to expose students to computer science and programming.
Jefferson Middle School participated for the second year by giving all students a programming lesson during their connections period.
