Hour of Code – Congratulations to BCPS for being the WORLDWIDE LEADER in participants in the 2014 Hour of Code!

What is an Hour of Code? It’s a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator. To learn more and to find out how your school can participate, visit Code.org’s website at http://csedweek.org/
