Once again, this year millions of schools will take part in activities to raise awareness about opportunities for Computer Science Education by participating in activities and events like Hour of Code during Computer Science Awareness Week, December 6-10, 2021.

The Apple STEM Network has recruited partners North Central Educational Service District (NCESD), NCW Tech Alliance, Nuevo Foundation, Microsoft, and dozens of schools across the region to celebrate Computer Science Education Week, an annual event dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science. Hour of Code is a global movement introducing tens of millions of students worldwide to computer science, inspiring kids to learn more, breaking stereotypes, and leaving them feeling empowered. Hour of Code is an opportunity for every student to try computer science for one hour.

In addition to school-day events in the Wenatchee, Eastmont, Quincy, Methow Valley, Bridgeport and Moses Lake school districts, any youth or family can choose to join in to any one of five virtual regional events this fall.

During Computer Science education week, nightly events are free and open to the public. All events are intended for students to participate remotely, or at home with family. No prior computer science experience is necessary to participate. Tuesday, Dec. 7th and Wednesday, Dec. 8th events are appropriate for families and students of all ages. Monday, Dec. 6th and Friday, Dec. 10th events are intended to support youth ages 16+ to connect computer science education to careers and skills for employment. Thursday, December 9th, will feature an event for middle and high school aged girls.

“The whole idea for these events is to get students and families to try something new together. Families have a huge impact on how students see themselves, their strengths, and what their future holds. When we get a chance to learn together, we help students develop a vision for their future.” said Tami McBride, Career Connected Learning Specialist at the North Central Educational Service District.
