Kannapolis City Schools is taking part in the "Hour of Code" event to teach students about coding and computer science. Hour of Code is a nationwide initiative designed to help prepare the next generation of computer programmers. According to Code.org, there will be 1 million more jobs available in the computer science field by the year 2020 than there will be graduates qualified to fill them. “We want to give our students every opportunity to be exposed to this rapidly growing area and build an interest,” said Susan Monteith, A.L. Brown Media Coordinator. “We think this is a great way to help our students and give them real time practice in the area of coding.”

 

The Hour of Code event exposes students to basic computer programming and helps them learn to generate actual computer code. Both A.L. Brown High School and Kannapolis Intermediate School took part in the event. Students can receive a certificate of completion when they finish the lesson.
