With technology transforming every industry on the planet, computing knowledge has become part of a well-rounded skill set. And each year, Code.org’s Hour of Code campaign inspires millions of students around the world to take the first step toward learning computer science. This one-hour introduction to computer science demystifies code and shows that anybody can learn the basics.

Great story shedding light on the need to expose students to CS earlier in their K-12 experience. The key to success will be the hard working teachers of NC taking up the charge. #CS4NC #code ht @teachcode https://t.co/LMxW1pKa5f
