In a collaborative effort to increase awareness of computer science in schools, Intel Engage is joining the global movement to reach tens of millions of students and teachers in over 180 countries to encourage them to just try “an Hour of Coding?” during December 7-13.
Last year over 100 million students tried the Hour of Code and more girls tried computer science than in the last 70 years.
Each year more than 44 million people of all ages participate in an Hour of Code. This is a one-hour introductory course designed to demystify computer science and show that anybody can learn the basics of computer programming. The goal is to have students take part in grade level specific activities. Code.org and other organizations have created these materials for participants to use during National Computer Science Week (December 7-13) or before or after. These are very simple, easy to follow lessons that are teacher and student friendly.
So, our mission is a multifaceted one that will expand over several months. You will have several missions to complete over the next few month. In order to receive your Learning Pathway Mission Badge and or be eligible for an Intel-inside product , you will need to complete all parts of the mission. This is a WorldWide event so we are wanting a WorldWide sharing event here in Intel Engage! (Please refer to the Community Sweepstakes Drawing policy for eligibility )
