ACM and ACM-W Hour of Code
The K-State Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the K-State ACM Women in Computing (ACM-W) chapters are hosting an 'Hour of Code' at K-State and we invite you to volunteer!
The 'Hour of Code' is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week [http://csedweek.org] and Code.org [http://code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming. You can find more information online at http://hourofcode.com.
Together, K-State CIS faculty and student volunteers like yourself will guide Kansas-based youth in an hour-long, age-appropriate activity based on the Computer Science curriculum available from the 'Hour of Code' and K-State CIS outreach programs, such as the GK-12 research group.
The official Hour of Code event will run from 6 - 7 PM, but youth are welcome to stay until 8 PM if they wish to continue working on their projects. Students may also be accompanied by parents, teachers, and chaperones from their own school district.
Help us help others get excited about Computer Science! Inspire a new generation of programmers and curious minds! Volunteer to make a difference!
