Recognized nationally, Computer Science Education Week is an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in the field of computer science.

Tutorials are available for all ages-from pre-reader through high school in a range of subjects from art and music to computer science and math. Hour of Code activities are designed by an unprecedented coalition of technological partners, require no experience for your child to participate, and can be run on computers, iPads, iPhones, Androids or no device at all!

"Computer science education provides foundational learning in computational thinking that enables students to develop and apply critical thinking skills, demonstrate imagination and creativity, practice collaboration, exhibit leadership, and employ problem-solving skills", the proclamation reads.

Computer science drives innovation through the U.S. economy, but it remains marginalized throughout K-12 education. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Ranking Member of the Joint Economic Committee, released the following video promoting "Hour of Code" events taking place this week across New Mexico during Computer Science Education Week.

It's also worldwide science education week and people of all ages are being encouraged to take part in an hour of code.

"Using Itelitek's CoderZ software platform, we built 50 virtual coding challenges that allow students to navigate robots through increasingly hard challenges".

Also this week the girls are encouraged to post what they're learning about on social media using #girlsintechkc.

As this generation of learners grows up more tech savvy, and more aware of technology's potential, it's hoped they will be able to apply their skills to successfully overcome the challenges of climate change, overpopulation, rapid urbanisation, mass migration, health epidemics and economic instability - challenges which will only be overcome with technology and human ingenuity. So far, more than 450 million students have signed up.
