SHPE Cincinnati was very proud to support the Cincinnati Regional Kick-off of Hour of Code (Dec. 7, 2015)

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. 

In one week last year, close to 80 million people tried computer science! Computer science was on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. President Obama, Malala, and other celebrities kicked off the Hour of Code with videos. Over 100 partners came together to support this movement. 

This year The Hour of Code movement is aiming for 100 million students. 

Taft Information Technology High School organized on Dec. 7, 2015 at the Cincinnati Regional Kickoff for this largest learning event in history.  Organized by the nonprofit and over 100 others, the event is a statement that today’s generation of students are ready to learn critical skills for 21st century success. 

The Cincinnati event was presented by the UC School of Information Technology andCincinnati Bell, both  of which have been on the forefront of promoting Information Technology to schools, and are instrumental in transforming the Taft High School into an "Information Technology" High School!

The goal of the event was to bring together organizations, companies, teachers, as well as children from local schools and their parents, to make them aware of IT opportunities in the global world, and to promote IT Education in Cincinnati.

This event couldn't take place without the support of several organizations and companies, especially Dr. Hazem Said from School of Information Technology at the University of Cincinnati and Mr. Steve Smith from Cincinnati Bell - the Presenting Sponsors, as well as BDPA CincinnatiSHPE CincinnatiXOOPS Foundation, and theTaft Alumni Association - Supporting Sponsors, and finally P.G. Sittenfeld from theCincinnati City Council.
