JATC students host Hour of Code at Rosamond Elementary

Local schools join mission to introduce 100m students to computer science

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. In one week last year, 15 million students tried computer science! Computer science was on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. President Obama, Shakira and Ashton Kutcher all kicked off the Hour of Code with videos. Over 100 partners came together to support this movement. Now the Hour of Code movement is aiming for 100 million students. That’s why on December 10th Jordan Applied Technology Center (JATC) Web Design and Digital Media students and the 712 students at Rosamond Elementary are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Dec. 8-14. The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit and over 100 others, is a statement that today’s generation of students are ready to learn critical skills for 21st century success. Please join us.
