We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.
But only a fraction of us are learning how technology works. Only 51% of all high schools offer computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week commencing December 5th-9th. More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Oasis Academy Lister Park is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. Our students are all taking part in the hour of code on Thursday 8th of December 2022, as part of a whole school challenge. experiences
