Volunteer to help in UMBC’s Hour of Code events, Dec 4 and 5

Hour of Code is a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science using a one-hour coding activity. The one hour coding activity is designed to show that anyone can learn the basics of coding, and to create a more inclusive computer science community. The CS Education student organization, with support from the CS Matters in Maryland CS education project, will host UMBC’s Hour of Code event on Monday (Dec. 4) and Tuesday (Dec. 5).

On December 4th from 10am-1pm, they will host the Hour of Code event for anyone who wants to try the coding activities on Main Street.

On December 5th from 11am-2pm, they will have special guests. Some students from Lakeland Elementary School will learn to code along with President Freeman Hrabowski.

The CS Education Club needs volunteers to make this event a success. Coding experience is useful, but not necessary. They will host training sessions prior to the event for everyone who volunteers. The training will give you a chance to try our Hour of Code activity along with a Makey Makey activity.  Read about last year’s Hour of Code event at UMBC here.
