Students in the Stephenville Independent School District were among more than 2 million worldwide who tried one Hour of Code from December 4-10. The movement, organized by Code.org and supported by Apple, Google, Microsoft and Amazon, is a statement that today’s generation of students are ready to learn critical skills for 21st century success.
