Royall School participates in Hour of Code
Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. The good news is, Royall is on its way to change this. With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney.
Over 100 partners have joined together to support this worldwide movement. Last year, every Apple Store in the world hosted an Hour of Code and even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.
That’s why every one of the almost 700 students at Royall Elementary School are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Dec. 7-11.
The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 other organizations, is an effort to insure that today’s generation of students are ready to apply the critical skills needed to prepare them for the challenges of the future. The public is invited to participate in the Hour of Code, Dec. 7-11 at Royall Elementary, 1101 Cheraw Drive.
