CS for Good: The Theme for the 2019 Hour of Code

After glancing at the Hour of Code activities posted on Code.org last week, I saw a few platforms that focused on ethical, scientific and social issues (https://code.org/csforgood).

Reminder: May 2, AP CSP performance task deadline!


The final deadline to submit performance tasks, indicate exam intent and enter the AP number for AP CSP is fast approaching – May 2, 11:59 p.m. ET.  If your students haven't done so already, it is highly recommended that they submit before the 2nd as in the past the Digital Portfolio website crashes the day the PTs are due because of many last minute submissions.   For support in having students review their Explore PTs,  see the infographic in the link below:
