Hour of Code 2017

Hour of Code 2017
Posted on 12/15/2017
Hour of CodeWe live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.


But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. Fortunately, FDR has 3 computer science classes, one at each grade level.


Our entire school joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10). FDR participated in the Hour of Code on Friday, December 8th, Monday, December 11th, and Tuesday, December 12th. This was FDR's fourth year of participating in the Hour of Code. More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code, and leaders like President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote their first lines of code as part of the campaign.
