Event Details

Use your creativity and problem solving skills to explore and build underwater worlds with code!

From basic digital literacy to advanced computer science, digital skills are often out of reach for the young people who need them most. In a world being transformed by technology, all youth should have the opportunity to develop the creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills gained through learning computer science.

You don’t have to be a computer science expert to attend an Hour of Code. Tutorials and other resources are available free to light the spark of creativity and can be used successfully without a computer science background.

This event is completely FREE and OPEN to the public. RSVP strongly recommended. Please bring your own laptop if available. Limited number of laptops available for students who don’t have access.
