Micro:bits for Hour of Code
Microbit Foundation sponsoring 2,500 micro:bits for the Hour of Code
Over the past three years, the Hour of Code has introduced 100 million students in over 180 countries to computer science. Computer science is foundational. Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to learn how to create technology. Computer science is changing every industry on the planet. The basics of computer science also help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills, and prepare students for any future career. The UK is lucky, most schools in the world don’t teach computer science. The teacher-powered Hour of Code movement is changing that—breaking stereotypes around coding and sending the message that anybody can learn. This is why the Micro:bit Educational Foundation is proud to be sponsoring 2,500 micro:bits in Europe for the Hour of Code
This year, let’s make it even bigger. Support the push for Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week, December 5-11, 2016.
