In 2014 a handful of companies in Boulder thought, “wouldn’t it be cool if the whole town celebrated Computer Science Education Week and Hour of Code?”
And so they did just that! There was a week long, town-wide celebration of technology, innovation, and computer science educational fun for parents, kids, and teachers.
Programs were open to kids as young as 4 and as old as high school. Apps were made, robots were built, Scratch was learned, and a lot of families exclaimed that this kind of learning disguised as festive fun was just what they needed to help their kids explore CSED.
Best of all, companies joined arms to help one another invite Boulder to share CSED Week as a reason to celebrate our community. Companies did everything from planning the logistics of the week to donating (space or money or time) to presenting programs for kids to attend and get inspired from.
