2024 SPS Hour of Code
Summary: Seattle Public Schools students participated in Hour of Code with help from technology experts and district staff.
Seattle Public School (SPS) students in more than 100 classrooms took part in Hour of Code events geared at increasing student access to computer programming and safe use of artificial intelligence (AI).
Thanks to the SPS Digital Learning Team, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Minecraft, students learned coding, computing, game design, and more.
At Louisa Boren STEM K-8 and Arbor Heights Elementary, Amazon volunteers used the new Hour of Code Dance Party: AI Edition to give students an hour-long introduction to coding and AI.
These Hour of Code events were part of CSEdWeek—a national effort to advocate for equity, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers, and partners to the technology industry.
