Where do I park?

What will my child learn?

The Hour of Code is a program created by Code.org and Computer Science Education Week. There are dozens of different tutorials ranging from extremely basic programming concepts for Kindergarten-age kids to complex database queries for older kids. We will offer six tutorials from Code.org’s selection (you’ll be welcome to try others, but our volunteers will be prepared to help with six specific tutorials). The tutorials will be selected to provide challenges for children of all ages and experience levels. Every child should be able to learn something new.

What equipment do I need to bring?

Most Hour of Code tutorials run in a modern web browser and do not require any special software to be installed. A laptop with a recent version of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge is recommended.

We will have a few spare laptops to loan, but we have to stress the word “few.” When you bring a laptop or tablet for your student, that helps ensure a loaner is available for a student who truly can’t bring one.
