Learn To Program, Roanoke!

A Community Project Promoting Computer Science and STEM Education

We are actively working to create more educational opportunities for students and adults throughout the region. Inspired by the Computer Science For All initiative, our goal is to promote STEM and Computer Science with fun and interesting educational offerings.

The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week, which is December 3-9, 2018.

Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
