According to their website "Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra. Code.org organizes the annual Hour of Code campaign which has engaged 10% of all students in the world, and provides the leading curriculum for K-12 computer science in the largest school districts in the United States." This was the third year that all classrooms at OCE participated in Hour of Code. The initiative was begun by Liz Welsh in 2014, spearheaded by Anja Bump in 2015, and had significant leadership by Marina Zheng in 2016. In the past two years, we have had significant support from parents and 5th grade students to assist during Hour of Code sessions in the classroom. We were almost foiled by the weather this year, with several snow days occurring during the original week of Hour of Code (December 6-9). However, due to the great flexibility and cooperation of OCE teachers, we will be able to reach 100% participation by mid-January. In 2015, the Lake Oswego Review featured the Hour of Code at OCE.
