With technology changing every industry on the planet, computing knowledge has become part of a well-rounded skill set. But fewer than half of all schools teach computer science!
The good news is, we’re on our way to changing this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. One hundred million students have now discovered how accessible and fun computer science can be by doing just one Hour of Code.
What Most Schools Don’t Teach
“The Hour of Code is designed to demystify code and show that computer science is not rocket science – anybody can learn the basics,” said Hadi Partovi, founder and CEO of Code.org. “Over 100 million students worldwide have tried an Hour of Code. The demand for relevant 21st-century computer science education crosses all borders and knows no boundaries.”
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics.

And, if you use social media, use the hashtags #culvercoding and #culverpride and show the CCUSD community your coding skills!
