Every year in the first week of December OLN participates in the global Hour of Code. This is to encourage students in computer science and coding. As you know from previous years we have been coding in Information Literacy & Guided Inquiry (Library) lessons.
We began coding apps 2 years ago and entered the Tech Girls Are Superheroes global competition to encourage girls in a career in STEM. This year the two teams had female mentors from Accenture. This company supports the Hour of Code.
