Carter G. Woodson School will join communities across the country to promote computer science as Dec. 3- 9 kicks off “Computer Science Education” week. The event, named the “Hour of Code,” aims to introduce computer science early to spark students’ interest in the science and technology field.

The Hour of Code began as a one-hour coding challenge to give students an introduction to computer science. It’s been described as the largest learning event in history, according to its website.

The Hour of Code is being hosted by America’s Teen Technology in partnership with S.G. Atkins Community Development Corporation and the Southeast Neighborhood Association (SENA). This event will be held at The Enterprise Center at 1922 S. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive. The Hour of Code will begin at 10 -11 a.m. in the center’s computer lab.

Kanika Brown, founder of America’s Teen Technology and president of the Morningside/Reynolds Park Neighborhood Association says, “it’s important for teens to understand computer science and develop a new mindset for their future.” She wants to encourage not only students, but parents to spend more time with their teens.

The Hour of Code is designed for ages 4 to 104 years old. There will also be an Hour of Code for seniors during the week, as well. Berlita Mack of Carter G. Woodson will be facilitating the one-hour coding workshop. Elected officials are encouraged to support the Hour of Code. Southeast Ward Councilman James Taylor, who is also The Chronicle’s publisher, will be on hand for the event. 

For more information, contact Kanika Brown at (336) 995-7661 or The Enterprise Center at (336) 734-6916.
