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 hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.
The Hour of Code program hopes to change that by showing people that anyone can learn coding. Many librarians are offering coding activities as part of their makerspace.
Even President Obama has encouraged young people to make video games and apps, rather than just playing them.
