The Hour of Code is a global movement that reaches millions of students across the globe through a one-hour program of computer science and computer programming.
Chetna Aggarwal and Stacey Annens from Monsanto kicked off the event in the MICDS STEM building to discuss IT careers with the students. The students then began their Hour of Code by choosing a one-hour tutorial of their choice from Code.org.
The students could choose between different topics, including:
- Social Studies
- Language Arts
- Art, Media, Music
- Computer Science only
- Or a combination
The program was a great opportunity for students to develop their interest in coding while engaging with professionals from the St. Louis area.
