Maarif School Participates in the Hour of Code
Maarif School pledges to expand access and diversity in computer science. Maarif School celebrates the Hour of Code event during Computer Science Education Week, December 4-10. It’s an opportunity for every child to learn how the technology around us works. 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 depend on understanding how technology works. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Maarif School is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills.
Thanks to the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code, and even leaders like President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote their first lines of code as part of the campaign.
The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 others, is a global movement that believes the students of today are ready to learn critical skills for 21st-century success.
