NATIONAL HOUR OF CODE WEEK

Are you in the 90% or the 10%?

90% of high schools in the U.S. do not offer computer science. Here at Ridgefield Park, we do!  In an effort to raise continued awareness of the computer science program in our school, Ridgefield Park Junior-Senior High School will once again be participating in the National Hour of Code (December 5-9).  This program is available to all ages, and no prior programming knowledge is necessary to participate.  Several teachers throughout the building will be holding coding sessions during the week.  This year includes Star Wars and Minecraft branded applications to help facilitate the process.   According to code.org, "every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity.  By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path." All students are encouraged to participate. Check it out.
