Hour of Code1 min read

Estimated Read Time: 2 minutes

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this.

With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. Over 100 partners joined together to support this movement. Last year, every Apple Store in the world hosted an Hour of Code and even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.

That’s why Phidev is inviting the El Paso Community to join in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Dec. 12-13. Join us to write your first lines of code and spend some time with a professional team of software developers.  We will have other computer science related activities for everyone from age 4 to 104!

I’m writing to invite you to attend our kickoff assembly, and to see you and kids start the activity on Friday, December 12 at 2 P.M. A totally free experience to learn new skills!

The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 others, is a statement that today’s generation of students are ready to learn critical skills for 21st-century success. Please join us and attend!
