Volunteer work: Hour of Code

A recent Saturday saw a few dads and I run an Hour of Code at our local primary school. Hour of Code is basically what it sounds like – helping students in years k – 6 understand coding fundamentals for an hour using engaging and novel online activities.

We had a load of fun, with around 40 kids coming, they were so focused the whole time.

For what is going to be such a huge skill for them in their workplaces, an enjoyable taster and introduction is really key to get their imaginations moving.
