ANS is participating in
The largest learning event in history
December 7-11, 2015
The Hour of Code is coming again! and the American Nicaraguan School will be participating in this world-wide historic event. Computer Science is a foundation for every student.
What is the Hour of Code?
A one-hour activity. Students of all ages can choose from a variety of self-guided tutorials, for kindergarten and up. Tutorials work on any modern browser, tablet, smartphone, or even with no computer at all.
Code.org’s own tutorials feature Disney’s Frozen, Scrat form Ice Age, Angry Birds, and Plants vs. Zombies. New tutorials are coming to kick off the 2015 Hour of Code!
A spark to keep learning computer science. Once students see what they create right before their eyes, they’re empowered to keep going.
No experience needed from teachers and students.
A global movement with more than 100 million learners in 180 countries. Tutorials are available in 40 different languages.
Why computer science?
Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to take part in creating technology that’s changing our world. The basics help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills, and prepare students for any future career. But most schools still don’t teach computer science.
