The School of Computing and Creative Media (SCM), UCTS had successfully hosted Hour of Code 2020 via code.org. This online Hour of Code event was organized in conjunction with Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) which was an annual call to action to inspire K-12 students to learn computer science, advocate for equity in computer science education, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers, and partners to the field.
This year, we were excited to explore Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the Hour of Code that gave every student the opportunity to learn about AI. At a time when AI and machine learning are changing the very fabric of society and transforming the entire industries, it is more important than ever to give every student the opportunity to not only learn how these technologies work, but also to think critically about the ethical and societal impacts of AI. Upon completion, the students earned a certificate of completion.
