delighted to be a part of Computer Science Education Week and code.org's “Hour of Code”!
As part of
our celebrations next week, we are going to be spotlighting NCWIT Award for
Aspirations in Computing recipients for 2013 with a special focus on those
working with Kodu. The AspireIT Middle School Outreach Program matches award
winners with participating programs to run computer outreach clubs, summer
camps, and after school programs. The goal is provide a “near-peer” approach
for learning and creativity in computers, and the efforts these winners have
put together is nothing short of amazing.
want to check back every single day during the week of December 9-13 to get
inspired with us and find out how these women got started in programming. You’ll
learn straight from their words why – and how they use Kodu. They have also
provided an abundance of helpful advice for folks wanting to start programs in
calendar of events. See you next week!
