In celebration of Computer Science Education Week and to celebrate GRCC’s 100th birthday, the CIS department is hosting a 100 Hours of Code Event this Thursday. We have about 50 students already registered, and collectively they have pledged to donate over 100 hours of coding on Thursday alone.

  • You can do this face to face and show up anytime between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in 214 ATC on December 11 to participate. We will have goodies, and great fun.
  • You can also do this online via BlackBoard, so be sure to log into BB during that time.
  • There will be a variety of tutorials you can follow.
  • Each student who participates will be sent a Certificate of Completion. This Certification of Completion is something you can put on your resume to demonstrate to future employers your dedicated to Computer Science Education. Remember…Code.org is a non-profit dedicated to expanding computer science education. The Code.org vision is that computer science should be part of the core curriculum in every school, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra. This is just another way to show your employer you are dedicated to the field.
