Hour of Code - Coming in January

Stillmeadow students will participate in the Hour of Code throughout the month of January.  They will be joining millions of students in receiving this one-hour tutorial in computer science and computer programming as part of a global movement by the Computer Science Education Week and Code.org.

After the introduction in the media center, children will participate in followup activities in their classrooms. The goal is to inspire students to continue to be interested in learning more about coding and computer science beyond the Hour of Code.

The school is looking for volunteers for this program. If you have some experience with coding (or even if you don't and still want to help out) please contact Jodi Flom Nathanson at  JNathanson@StamfordCT.gov .
