Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.
The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide.
Robinson students participated in this event thanks to the initiative of our Educational Technologist, Viviane Fournier, and the support of the Student Technology Association sponsored by José Ortiz, our Professor of Technology and design. The event was a success and students had fun while learning such necessary skills!
