Connectech founder Coral Wells said: “We’re very proud to be a part of this global celebration of computer science.

“Computer science opens more doors for students than any other discipline in today’s world. Learning even the basics will help students in virtually any career from architecture to zoology.

“Just as we teach students how to dissect a frog, or how electricity works, it’s important for every 21st century student to have a chance to design an app or an algorithm, or learn how the Internet works.”

The Hour of Code is the highlight of Computer Science Education Week which takes place from December 5 – 11 this year.

In addition to the Hour of Code, the open house will also showcase the options available at Connectech for small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs.

Guests will also be treated to light refreshments, Ras Pi demonstrations, a Minecraft scripting workshop, A Start up Weekend presentation, WordPress Demos and portfolio highlights from the existing companies within Connectech.

“We encourage the community to come by and meet the Connectech Community as well as participate in the code movement,” said Ms Wells.
