Celebrate Computer Science Education Week with our contest, free training and an Hour of CodeBy Manya Susoev
It’s Computer Science Education Week, and as part of an effort to expand participation in computer science education, nonprofit Code.org is encouraging students to learn how to code for an hour this week. Over six million students have already participated, and the organization hopes to reach 10 million students by week’s end.
To show our support, we’re giving away three free months of training and $1,000 donation to Code.org in the name of whomever wins our We <3 Computers contest. All you have to do is tell us about the moment you fell in love with computers. We’re also giving away grants to the first 50 qualifying U.S. schools that participate in Hour of Code. Do you know someone at a school who could use this benefit? Let them know about our training grants.
And if you haven’t done your Hour of Code yet, get to it! Check out some of the awesome things being shared about Hour of Code across social media.
