As automation professionals, we fully understand how computers are everywhere and changing every industry on the planet. But fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. Good news is, organizations such as Code.org are working to change this. If you’ve heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.
With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code, and leaders like President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote their first lines of code as part of the campaign.
Take a moment to learn more about the Hour of Code by visiting their website. Try a coding tutorial, and consider volunteering in some way to raise awareness and make a difference the lives of our young people.
