Join Us in an Hour of Code for Computer Science Education Week

By Karen Bergin, Director, Citizenship and Public Affairs

Today on the Official Microsoft Blog, Satya Nadella, executive vice president, cloud and enterprise at Microsoft, kicks off Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek). In partnership with and other leading tech companies, Microsoft is encouraging 10 million students of all ages to spend an hour this week learning basic coding skills.

Right now, less than 2.4 percent of college students graduate with a degree in computer science, yet computer programming jobs are growing at twice the national average. This is partly why, as part of Microsoft’s YouthSpark initiative, we run a program called TEALS (Technology Education And Literacy in Schools). TEALS pairs computer engineers from Microsoft and other tech companies with full-time high school teachers to teach basic and advanced computer science.

To find out more about Microsft’s participation in CSEdWeek and how you can get involved in the “Hour of Code,” please read the full post on the Official Microsoft Blog.
