Next week is Computer Science Education Week and in conjunction with this, the second annual Hour of Code event will occur in classrooms all across the world.   The Hour of Code is the largest learning campaign in history, supported by big names in the business world such as Google, Apple, Facebook, Best Buy, and the Boys and Girls Club of America.
Many EUSD teachers and students participated in the inaugural event last year and reported incredible engagement and excitement on all fronts!
