Middle school school girls arrived early this morning to hear from coder, entrepreneur, and Task Rabbit CEO Leah Busque. It was day two of Hour of Code, an international celebration of Computer Science Education Week that is boldly aiming to see 10 million students spend an hour coding.
The room was at capacity as Leah explained how coding has given her the power to bring her thoughts and dreams to life. “No one understands your ideas better than you” Leah explained as she explored that what has made Task Rabbit so successful has not been an entirely original idea – but instead the skills to realize that idea.
Hamlin is leaning in this week, celebrating with speakers, alumnae visits, and the goal of having every Hamlin girl and staff member spend an hour coding (more details).
