Ranger Good Works Presents Hour of Code 2017 – We are preparing for Computer Science Education Week and plan to create a fan-tas-tech event for 2017!
VOLUNTEERS Needed at Dillard Elementary School Friday, December 08, 2017
If you are a technologist or interested in volunteering your time for this event, click on the Volunteer button and sign up to be a part of this exciting event for the students of Dillard Elementary.
See what you are signing up for. Watch our video. A community partner initiative! Once again, Ranger Technical Resources & Ranger Good Works are recruiting friends and community partners to help educate over 850 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.

- Show up on site 30 minutes 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.

This experience will continue to fill the students’ treasure chest full of great life experiences. In 2013 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.
“The Hour of Code is a global movement introducing tens of millions of
students worldwide to computer science, inspiring kids to learn more,
breaking stereotypes, and leaving them feeling empowered.
What is the Hour of Code?
A one-hour introduction to computer science.
The Hour of Code began as a one-hour
coding challenge to give students a fun first
introduction to computer science and has
become a global learning event, celebration,
and awareness event.
An annual global event. The Hour of Code
takes place every year during Computer
Science Education Week, the first week in
December. With a huge groundswell of support
and attention, it’s an ideal time for schools
and districts to put the spotlight on computer
science programs and expand opportunities.” Code.org
Today, over 100 million students around the world have participated in this initiative. As a technology solutions company Ranger Technical Resources continues to contribute by sending mentors to local schools.
We are happy to say that since 2014 we expanded to include the entire elementary school. Over 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 2017 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.
