The RVC "Hour of Code" will be offered at Cherryvale Mall starting January 2020! The FREE workshops takes place the 1st Tuesday of the month. The FREE workshops will take place on the second floor of the mall near Maurices.
Attendees assembled their own computer from a Raspberry Pi and other circuit boards that can be taken home after the workshop, and also learned to code via programs like Minecraft Pi.
The FIRST “Hour of Code” event at Rock Valley College was on December 12th, 2015. The event brought 126 people from the Rockford Region to learn more about Computer Science fundamentals and coding!
To keep this momentum going Professor Chuck Konkol of Rock Valley College hosts monthly “Hour of Code” Workshops! These “Hour of Code” workshops are OPEN TO PUBLIC! The workshops are scheduled monthly. The "Hour of Code" workshops focus on creating a drag and drop app to share with family and friends while the "Learn Coding with Robots" focus on coding and robotics.
