*** COMPLETED YOUR HOUR OF CODE? Take our survey.
Here, we proudly display the certificates earned by U.S. Virgin Islanders during Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek), an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science.
Originally conceived by the Computing in the Core coalition, Code.org is producing CSEdWeek for the first time this year, held in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
With the help of Code.org, Computer Science Education Week had far surpassed its goal of 10 million participants in the Hour of Code, a series of tutorials that demonstrate the basics of computer science regardless of age, computer skills or access to technology (with “unplugged” versions).
In the United States Virgin Islands, the Virgin Islands Next Generation Network, Inc. (viNGN) supported the collaborative effort via marketing, social media, and word of mouth and saw the territory among those counted in the millions around the world in 170 countries.
We invite all who did the #USVIHourOfCode to fill in our survey form and send us their certificates to add to our photo album. Certificates may be emailed to Anita Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are pleased and proud to have been part of this tremendous movement, which will contribute to the economic, intellectual and creative progress for everyone.
