In honor of the International Week of Code, and in response to CSE, NASA, and Code.org request, ICA is sponsoring a live 1-hour live lesson this Thursday, 12/12 at 1 pm, Coding for Beginners – Robotics, targeted at Grades K – 8.
The video lesson is open to any interested school or student worldwide.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Here is a little more information about this fantastic event.
This week is the International Week of Code. Top teaching programs around the world have been invited to sponsor 1 hour of live coding instructions #HourOfCode. Those chosen institutes will broadcast to the world.
Schools are participating in this event to help students learn more about coding. In the US, the program is sponsored by CSE and NASA. The schools and locations were selected for this year, and ICA will be one of the organizations broadcasting next week!
– We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.
But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Only 45% of all high schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 9-15). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that ICA is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills.
