2016 Hour of Code with re:learn
In recognition of the 2016 Computer Science Education Week, re:learn is pleased to host the Hour of Code in its Lagos and Abuja centres.
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer programming, designed to demystify coding and show that anyone can learn to program. A global movement, the Hour of Code reaches millions of students in over 180 countries.
In celebration of the Hour of Code, re:learn is organising a week-long lineup of free activities. Last year, we introduced 65 children between the ages of 5-18 to an Hour of Code. This year, we have activities lined up for schools, teachers, parents and their children.
Computers are becoming a critical piece in this age, as they are integrated in almost every part of our lives. They’re in our pockets, homes and offices, impacting our everyday utilities and services. All these computers all have one thing in common; they depend on software to tell them what to do, which makes digital literacy a key part of this century.
Through the Hour of Code, we aim to spark excitement around learning computer science, not just for children, but teachers and parents!
The Hour of Code runs through the second week of December. You can sign up for Hour of Code activities holding on any day that week.
Date: 5th – 11th of December
Venue: Lagos – Co-Creation Hub MXLab, Ground Floor, 294 Herbert Macaulay Way, Sabo-Yaba
