Celebrate Computer Science Education Week by Participating in Hour of Code
Computing is a fundamental part of daily life, commerce and just about every occupation in our modern economy. Learning about computer science and technology will help students in virtually any career—from architecture to zoology. Please join us in promoting exposure to computer science during National Computer Science Education Week by participating in this year’s Hour of Code Contest.
SCUSD’s Green Schools Fellow formed and worked with a District Green Team to produce a report that showcases the District’s sustainability programs and outlines results. The district will use the report to benchmark its success and guide future programming. The report can also be used by other school districts from across the U.S. to clarify and support their sustainability efforts.
