We are once again bringing the Hour of Code to Miller School students, during the week of December 8th.

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries.

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Check out the tutorials, and look out for new ones coming for the Hour of Code 2014.

The Hour of Code gives every student the opportunity to learn computer science.  Learning about computer science helps students expand their problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. 

New this year we have formed a wonderful partnership with volunteers at EMC. Catherine Mitchell, a Holliston parent and employee of EMC, has graciously offered to organize EMC volunteers to engage and support our students during The Hour of Code.

Miller students will have an opportunity to ask "real-world" computer science engineers questions about learning to code and how it helps them in their roles at EMC.  Click on the this link to learn more: http://hourofcode.com/us .
