Bayside High School
CTE Computer Programming Director
Would like to invite local businesses to come see some of the things we are teaching at
Bayside High School while also learning a little a bit about programming. It will be a great time for all.
How cell phones do the things they do? How robots on an assembly line create a car? How video games look and feel so realistic?
During Computer Science Education Week
December 9 - 15
in support of Hour of Code,
Bayside High School is hosting various workshops designed to demystify "code" and show students, parents, faculty and members of the Bayside community that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator. Workshops will be held at Bayside High School from 3:45 to 4:45 (Session I) or 5:00 to 6:00 (Session II).
Registration is required to attend: http://tinyurl.com/BHS-HourOfCode

According to Code.org, the promoter behind Hour of Code,
1) 9 out of 10 schools do not offer computer programming courses.
2) by 2020 there will be 1.4 billion computing jobs with only 400,000 computer science students graduated.
3) Computer Science is one of the highest paid degrees with a job outlook of more than twice the national average.
