Hour of Code
Computer code is the alphabet of the Internet. This week we are celebrating the Hour of Code in honor of Grace Hopper’s birthday. Grace was an amazing pioneer of computer science in a time when women were thought by some to be too weak to think. She would have been 107 this year. So in Grace’s honor try one of these easy introductions to computer code. They are all very game-like. You might find you enjoy it!
