ALMS Hour of Code for Beginners
Sign up your middle school child for ALMS Hour of Code on December 5th 7-8:30 pm. Students will learn about computer programming at the Siwanoy computer lab while parents attend the PTA meeting featuring guest speakers. Teachers Lyda Martinelli, Gladys Vera, and Corey Andrews will partner with parent volunteers to provide instruction.

Please bring headphones.


The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that by 2020 there will be 1.4 million computer-science-related jobs available and only 400,000 computer science graduates with the skills to apply for those jobs. Computer science is the fastest growing science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) field. Furthermore, only a tiny minority of STEM graduates come from underrepresented or underprivileged backgrounds.

The average computer science major makes 40% more in lifetime earnings than the average college graduate and nearly three times more than the average high school graduate. Despite the opportunity, the vast majority of public schools do not offer computer science classes. Studies have also shown that exposing young children to STEM and computer science motivates them to stay interested long-term – through high school, college, and often beyond.
