We live in a world surrounded by technology. We know that whatever field our students choose to pursue, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. However, only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and fewer students are studying it than a decade ago.
That’s why the Uniondale School District is joining in on the largest learning event in history,The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14). Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students!
Uniondale is introducing and teaching these foundational 21st century skills. We are.planning an exciting week of code activities to promote the national program during the week of December 8. A team of experts from Codescholarly will be coming to the elementary and middle schools to provide students with exposure to coding. Programming activities will take place in all high school math classes.
