During the month of October, Outreach took a trip to the outskirts of Marrakech for an morning of trash picking. The knowledge we acquired from this experience was truly eye opening. This year’s clean-up initiative, was the second that Outreach had ever organized; our first trip happened last year during the month before the COP 22.
Outreach plans to have monthly clean-up trips in areas surrounding Marrakesh in hope to raise awareness in environmental issues that affect our community. Sign ups for these trips are posted monthly in school.
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 depend on understanding how technology works.
But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
