Hour of Code hosted by Finastra
The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. By participating in this program, Finastra is helping to further expand the movement globally and to introduce computer science to a wider audience, encouraging more girls and under-represented minorities to get involved. This grassroots campaign is already supported by over 200,000 educators worldwide.
Why Computer Science? Computer science helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. Moreover, in a future that will be heavily influenced by artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics, having exposure to and a basic understanding of computer science and coding is of paramount importance to youth today.
The Hour of Code is provided by Finastra through our Heart Plus Smart Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. While normally held in Finastra offices, schools or community centers, the COVID-19 crisis has given us the opportunity to hold Hour of Code sessions online. To join us, the student will need a computer or tablet, along with an internet connection. This event is suitable for ages 6+.
