The Hour of Code

We live in a world surrounded by technology. We know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works. However, only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.

That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10). Our Hour of Code is making a statement that McKinley is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills. All classes will be given the opportunity to participate in an hour of code (or more!) during this  week!
