Nearly one-third of all Maine schools hosted Hour of Code events in 2014

October 09, 2014

Over 200 Maine K-12 schools nearly 1/3 of all 550+ schools in Maine as well as colleges, libraries, and after-school programs hosted Hour of Code events in 2014!

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 30 languages. No experience is needed and the games are fun for all ages, from 4 to 104!

This year, the Hour of Code campaign during Computer Science Education Week, December 8-14, 2014 aimed to introduce 100 million students to one hour of online games and unplugged activities to raise awareness of computing and digital learning.

Anyone can host an hour of code event: schools, after-school activities, community organizations. One school in each state received a $10,000 grant. You can learn much more about hosting an Hour of Code event here: hourofcode.com/us

Over 200 Maine schools, colleges, libraries, and after-school programs hosted Hour of Code events in December! See the list below; teachers signed up here. But even if your school didn't participate, you can go to Code.org and earn your own Hour of Code certificate.
