I expect there are hour of code activities at all the MVWSD schools, we had at least two at Landels that I know of. There are hour of code activities you can do at home on and Khan Academy Web Link The Frozen activity ( is specifically targeting young women who are under represented in computer science. Note that CSEdWeek also celebrates the birthdays of two pioneers of computer science, Adm. Grace Hopper, and Ada Lovelace "The Enchantress of Numbers". Also, this week, a film about computer science pioneer Alan Turing "The Imitation Game" is playing at Century 16. The title of the film refers to the Turing Test from his 1950 paper on machine intelligence.
