Today, history is being made by technologies that are transforming the way we work, live, learn, and play. We use these every day, but very few of us know how to write the programs that make them work.
On December 14, the Museum will participate in The Hour of Code, a worldwide campaign sponsored by code.org, to introduce the creativity, excitement, and fun of computer programming to everyone. From 10am to 4pm, visitors can try their hand at self-guided tutorials that can be done on any device by anybody, from students to seniors. No experience necessary! Bring your own tablet or mobile device or use one of our laptops. We’ll have everything you need to learn the basics of computer programming … in just an hour!
About The Hour of Code:
The Hour of Code is part of Computer Science Education week (December 9-15), developed by code.org to celebrate the birthday of Grace Murray Hopper. Hopper was one of the first women engineers, a developer of the COBOL programming language, and a 1987 Fellow of the Museum. Learn more about her at computerhistory.org/fellowawards/hall/bios/Grace,Hopper/. Code.org is a non-profit dedicated to expanding computer science education, especially for women and underrepresented students of color.
