The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community effort.
At Bloomfield we are passionate about making sure our girls are ready to meet the demands of the global marketplace and, in doing so, have been involved with the Hour of Code Programme for six years. This year, the girls programmed Minecraft and even got to develop their own dance studio. Laura Brady from AMT-Sybex, part of Capita plc, talked about what it is like to work in the IT industry.
