BCPS to participate in National Computer Science Education Week

Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) will participate in the Hour of Code, set to take place during National Computer Science Education Week from December 7-13.  As part of the Hour of Code, BCPS Superintendent Robert W. Runcie will participate in coding activities at Morrow Elementary School on Wednesday, December 9, 2015, at 1 p.m
The County’s goal is to have 100 percent of the District’s schools, as well as 100 percent of the District’s elementary and middle school students, complete at least one hour of computer coding in honor of the District’s centennial anniversary.  

 

BCPS is the first Florida school district to partner with Code.org to increase computer science courses, curriculum and resources in schools.  Since 2013, the number of BCPS students participating in computer science courses and curriculum has increased from 240 students to more than 38,000 elementary, middle and high school students in 2015/16.  In addition, computer science is offered at every BCPS high school.

As part of the Hour of Code, BCPS Superintendent Robert W. Runcie will participate in coding activities at Morrow Elementary School, located at 408 SW 76TH Terrace, North Lauderdale, on Wednesday, December 9, 2015, at 1 p.m.
