The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and more than 100 other organizations, is a global movement that believes the students of today are ready to learn critical skills for their future, and Union Academy agrees.
During the week of December 4 - 8th UA’s Instructional Technology department lead students in Kindergarten through 12th grade in Hour of Code activities. These activities teach them the methods behind the magic of their favorite video games and computer programs, from Minecraft to Flappy Bird.
Computer science is changing every industry on the planet. Computing occupations are the fastest-growing, best-paying, and now largest sector of all new wages in the United States, and we want to give our students the opportunity to succeed in this technology-driven workforce. Computer science concepts also help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills to prepare students for any future career.
