Also this week the girls are encouraged to post what they're learning about on social media using #girlsintechkc. "When students use technology to create something of their own design by coding, it builds both technical skill and confidence - both of which are critical for success in the future".

Elementary school students throughout the state are also participating independently in Hour of Code projects at various times during the week. Code.org, which has raised more than $60 million from Microsoft, Facebook, Google, and Salesforce, was one of the first companies to tap into the demand for preteen programming literacy.
