The hour of code 2015 at st.Lawrence University by AdaTrait

The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. The Computer Science Education Week happens between December 5-11, but you can host an Hour of Code all year round. On 19th December 2015 ,Adatrait a startup I founded organised an hour of code event st.Lawrence university aimed at introducing coding to girls from all fields to programming in one hour.

For preparation , a group of six students offering IT and computer science were trained in a java script course from code academy to teach and coach on the day of the event for inspiration to the attendees.

The training took two hours of students doing a JavaScript tutorial from code academy.At the end of the day, students were so happy and we had interviews with the Lawrence campus TV with the students. 

All students who were able to finish their assignments were awarded certificates of participation in the hour of code. They were given standard certificates from hour of code international.

The students also received swag like  Adatrait branded stickers and pens , hour of code branded stickers and trainers received Adatrait branded T-shirts.

Adatrait intends to make this event annual to join the world in celebrating the computer science week.

A big shout out to Atong AkueinClemance Patayo ,  Isabella muhumuza and Kevin Janvier for making this happen.

These were the achievements and celebrations of the hour of code 2015 at st.Lawrence University.
