It’s BACK! The Hour of Code week (12/3-12/9) again will be promoting computer science (aka coding) to kids around the world. AccelerateKID® and along with other supporting organizations will be providing an hour of coding workshops in schools. This year, almost 136,000 students took an AP Computer Science exam (31% increase from 2017) according to Code.org. The fastest growing groups are female and underrepresented minorities. With your help, we can continue the growth by encouraging computer science in elementary and middle schools. You or a parent can request for a workshop to have our staff come out to teach coding in a fun and interactive environment using our unique AccelerateKID® STEAM.org™ Accredited curriculum.
The “Hour of Code” workshop will have a minimal cost of $150 and pays for 1-hr of instructional time. The maximum class size will be 30 kids in grades 3-8. Classrooms should have desktops and/or laptops for kids to use, and a projector for instructors to teach.
