What: Rivermont Joins The Hour of Code 2013

Goal: 10 million students - 1 billion lines of code!

Computer Science should be accessible to every 21st century student!  The Hour of Code is an opportunity for every student to try computer science for an hour.  Rivermont Collegiate students join 5 million others in 35,000 schools across 167 countries to participate as part of Computer Science Education Week 2013. From President Obama to Ashton Kutcher to Mark Zuckerberg, the Hour of Code has unprecedented support!

Hour of Code tutorials work on browsers, tablets, and smartphones and Rivermont students are working all over campus this week!  Photos and a schedule are attached.  Join us to see the Hour of Code in action and talk with students and teachers about what the Hour of Code means and what they`re learning!
