Ranger Good Works/Ranger Technical Resources with 51 Volunteers participated in the International Hour of Code at Dillard Elementary School on December 7, 2018.
We love it when a TECHNOLOGY plan comes together! Our local community joined together lending many helping hands! Every classroom filled with up to 24 students, had a volunteer to work with the teacher and help guide the students through the Hour of Code. Our goal was to spark interest in students from Pre-K through 5th grade to learn about computer coding. Knowing the computing field has the largest amount of job openings out of all occupations, we are aiming to encourage our students to be a part of the next generation of Technology Professionals. Over 7 million tech job openings exist today. Can you imagine how many jobs will exist in 2023?
We are happy to report over 850 students successfully completed one of the following coding activities: Code Binary Bracelets Activity, Code Crazy Creatures, Sparks Academy, Make a Flappy Game, Code Combat: Escape the Dungeon, Star Wars: Building a Galaxy with code and code.org dance party!
Computer Science Education Week – Hour of Code designed by Code.org and several nonprofits have impacted the world by engaging with over 100 million people in over 180 countries to learn the 21st Century foundation skills in technology.
We are pleased that Ranger Good Works, in conjunction with its partners, participated for the 6th year in a row with our local community touching the children of Dillard Elementary.
Great job to all involved! Thank you, Principal Atkins Brown, her faculty and all of the volunteers who participated! #Teamwork! #HourofCode #BrowardCodes #rangergoodworks
