Ranger Good Works presents: HOUR OF CODE 2015
We are preparing for Computer Science Education Week and plan to create a fan-tas-tech event for 2015!
A community partner initiative with Ranger Technical Resources, Citrix Systems, Nova SouthEastern University, Broward College, Merrill Lynch and others.
Once again, Ranger Technical Resources & Ranger Good Works are recruiting friends and community partners to help educate over 800 students from Dillard Elementary School about the importance of Computer Science in an international coding initiative founded by Code.org. We love it when our kids receive the three T’s….time, talent and treasure. Please join our Hour of Code volunteer team this year. The kids love to see familiar faces. If you can’t join us, tell a friend who you think can. Our communities continued help in making this a great event is much needed and appreciated.
The Hour of Code will take place at Dillard Elementary on Thursday, December 10, 2015.
- Responsibilities include: Sit in two conference calls prior to the Hour of Code at Dillard Elementary.
- Show up onsite one hour prior to the Hour of Code initiative
- Participate in classrooms with instruction or help in the classrooms
- Work with our coordinators and the teachers from Dillard Elementary to create a successful event.
- YOU do not need to be a programmer to volunteer. You only need to be able to read and speak to the children.
- Programmers who volunteer will be assigned to the classrooms where the students are more advanced with coding.

This experience will continue to fill the students treasure chest full of great life experiences. Three years ago we first partnered with Code.org for the Official Hour of Code, a Global Computer Science Education Week initiative to encourage youth to learn basic coding. Over 49 million students around the world participated. As a technology solutions company Ranger Technical Resources contributed by sending mentors to local schools and sponsored an Hour of Code at our corporate office for 40 students.
In 2014 we expanded. Eight hundred students from Dillard Elementary participated in a Computer Science related activity. As you can see the number of students we are encouraging has increased due to our community’s involvement.
In 2015 we will have close to 1000 students enrolled at Dillard Elementary School. We need all of the helping hands we can to keep up the great momentum. Please join our volunteer team for the Hour of Code on Thursday, December 10th. Click here to sign up. Thank you for your continued support!
