Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science as compared to ten years ago. The good news is, we’re on our way to changing this. If you have heard about the Hour of Code, you might know it made history. Last school year most Hooksett Memorial School students participated in the Hour of Code, the largest worldwide education event in history! In one week, 60 million students tried computer science!
During Computer Science Education Week (December 7-13), Hooksett Memorial School, in its entirety, will be among millions worldwide learning basic computer science skills. Due to our school’s commitment to participate, we were chosen as the one school in New Hampshire to receive an award of computer equipment from Code.org! Our Hour of Code is a statement that Hooksett Memorial School is ready to teach these foundational 21st Century Skills. To continue bringing programming activities to our students with our new resources, we want to make our Hour of Code event one to remember. Governor Maggie Hassan and Congressman Frank Guinta are expected at Hooksett Memorial School on Friday, December 11, at 1:30 PM to share in the celebration.
