Hour of Code and Computer Science Week, Hawaii Style!

This month's Google Rocks! Hawaii hangout on #hourofcode was so inspiring! +Shane Asselstine hosted, and several teachers shared what their schools did during Computer Science Week, Dec. 8 - 14.

The #hourofcode events highlighted in the slide show below are the tip of the iceberg. Hour of Code registered 338 events for Hawaii this year! See the list here.




Each school participated in #hourofcode in ways unique to their community. #socool

Two events stood out for hangout panelists because they were evening events that reached out to parents and the public. 

Hale Kula Elementary's Family Night (slide #6),


and Momilani Elementary's Everyone Can Code event (slide #3). 




Here's the entire broadcast, with details on the various events. Note the panelists' sparkle as they describe #hourofcode and related events at their school, and their fervor as they discuss their hopes for the future of coding in the curriculum.

Grab a cuppa and have a look and listen ...
