Computer science provides a foundation for virtually any career. It’s the art of blending human ideas and digital tools. Computer scientists work in so many different areas: writing apps for phones, curing diseases, creating animated movies, working on social media, building robots that explore other planets and so much more. That’s why Idaho Digital Learning is challenging all Idaho students to an “Hour of Code.”
Do something fun and rewarding and participate in an “Hour of Code” through one of the fun tutorials. Oh and by the way…all participants are eligible to WIN AN iPAD MINI compliments of Idaho Digital Learning!
What is an Hour of Code? It’s a one-hour introduction to computer science where anyone can learn the basics. Check out the Hour of Code website at http://hourofcode.org/.
