We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.

That’s why our entire community is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The HOUR OF CODE, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 136 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.

The event will take place on:

Monday, Dec. 7th, 2015, 6pm-9pm
Taft Information Technology High School
420 Ezzard Charles Dr, Cincinnati, Ohio 45214

The goal is to to bring together organizations, companies, teachers, as well as children from local schools and their parents, to make them aware of IT opportunities in the global world, and to promote IT Education in Cincinnati.

On that day we will also have at the Taft Information Technology High School a public viewing of the documentary called "WEB".

The movie "WEB" follows Peruvian families living in remote villages in the Amazon Jungle and Andes Mountains as their children experience the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) program, gaining access to the Internet for the first time.
The preview of the movie is here:

There is also an article from NYT giving some background info:
