#KIDS2030 PLASTICS CHALLENGE
Use data science and code to help prevent plastic pollution!
Hour of Code is a worldwide effort run by Code.org to celebrate and increase participation in computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities during Computer Science Education Week (December 7-13, 2020).
As an international partner of Code.org, KCJ is joining in on the fun this December.
Stay tuned for more exciting events and activities we’ll be offering this December!
For 2020, Hour of Code is focusing on Computer Science for Good (CSforGood), and so we made sure our projects linked to learning about Global Goal #4 and #12 - Quality Education and Responsible Consumption and Production.
This is part of our #kids2030 initiative, which aims to equip a million Canadian children with the digital skills they need to help meet the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development by 2030. Want to get more involved? Take the #kids2030 Challenge and help build a better future with less plastic pollution!
