STEM Revolution (Meridian) STEM Revolution is passionate about all things STEM, including coding. With our 60 ft STEM Bus Mobile Lab, we visit more than 40,000 students a year, bringing 20+ hands-on exhibits and an explosive science show that inspires a passion for STEM in every school we visit. This is STEM Revolution's third year of partnering with the Meridian Library District unBound to bring Hour of Code to the greater Boise area. This event welcomes more than 75 students and families with exclusive access to the well-known STEM Bus. After completing their Hour of Code, students climb aboard the STEM Bus to see first-hand where coding comes into play in a variety of fields from virtual reality to robotics. STEM Revolution loves partnering with unBound because it is more than a library; it's a fully integrated maker space that encourages students and families to come together to explore, design, and create. Though this event may not be the biggest; it just might be one of the best at putting a context around what students can do with their developing coding skills. Coding is an essential skill for success in any 21st century career, therefore we strive to empower students through the STEM Bus to take their Hour of Code one step further by applying their skills directly to what they are passionate about. This Hour of Code event is so unique and we would love this event to be highlighted as a special event. It occurs December 6th 4-7 pm at Meridian Library unBound (Idaho).

steven foster (Lakewood) he really loves to code so i went on code.org to teach him more about coding.
Taste Fully Done (Bonanza) After reading over documents concerning this movement, I see Oregon has little participation. I am willing to host this Hour of Code, to bring awareness in our community. However, I do not have the equipment at hand to carry out this participation. What I do have is the location, willingness and extreme enthusiasm to host such an event. I am a mother of five wonderful people and five grand children. I have some coding background and would be happy to assist in any capacity.

The Sunrise Association / Sunrise On Wheels / Sunrise STEAM Shack (New York) CHILDREN WITH CANCER PARTICIPATE IN INTERNATIONAL HOUR OF CODE
NY, NY… When a child has cancer, they spend extended time in the hospital and out-patient clinics. Missing a tremendous amount of school due to their compromised immune system, they often fall behind their peers.
In 2006, Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island became the first day camp in the world for children with cancer and their siblings, free of charge. While Sunrise has brought back the magic of childhood, a new program was introduced this summer — The Sunrise S.T.E.A.M. Shack --to help build children’s futures beyond cancer.
As a participant in the Hour of Code -- a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries -- the Sunrise Association is rolling S.T.E.A.M. Shack activities into NY metropolitan hospitals, including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Cohen's Children's Hospital, through its innovative Sunrise on Wheels program, that provides a day filled with Sunrise camp fun to children awaiting treatment in pediatric oncology units of participating hospitals. Volunteers wheel a rainbow trunk bursting with toys, games and activities right into many of our affiliated hospitals and change what could have been a bleak and depressing day into a day of camp fun!
Now, children can keep up with their peers and and will have the opportunity to build their own computers and learn to code on Kano computer kits. Inspired by a challenge from a six-year-old, Kano creates computer and coding kids for all ages, all over the world. Its mission is to make technology as simple and fun to create as it is to consumer. Joanna Bersin, Kano’s Head of Education, said, “Kano is excited to support the Sunrise on Wheels program and empower these children with creative computing.”

Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island is a proud member of the Sunrise Association, whose mission is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings world-wide, through the creation of Day Camps, Year-Round Programs and In-Hospital Recreational Activities, all offered free of charge.
