A classroom of East Cobb Middle School STEM students were one of seven schools in North America chosen to do a video chat with Dr. Hadi Partovi in honor of Hour of Code on Friday, Dec. 12, 2014. Dr. Partovi is the founder of code.org.
Launched in 2013, Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Their vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science.
East Cobb students chat with Dr. Partovi at the 18:45 mark of the video linked above.
