How to Turn Syncing On in Chrome

Google Chrome lets you sync up your Google account to your browser across any device. 


How does turning syncing on help students?

When enabled, bookmarks, history, passwords, extensions, and themes—among many other settings—sync from your Google account, creating a seamless experience no matter where you are.

How to Turn Syncing On

  • To get started syncing to your Google account, fire up Chrome and click on the profile menu icon in the top right corner of your browser, then click “Turn on sync.”
  • You’ll be redirected to a Google Chrome sign-in screen, where you have to enter your Google email—or phone number associated with Google—and click “Next.”
  • Enter your password and click “Next.
  • Then, you will be asked if you would like to link your Chrome data to this account. Select “Link Data”.
  • Next, you’re greeted with a prompt asking if you want to turn on sync. Click “Yes, I’m In” to enable syncing of Chrome.

Wired Wednesday! Computer Science Education Week and the Hour of Code

Don't miss out on this worldwide effort to celebrate computer science. The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week and the purpose is to demystify "code" and show that ANYBODY can learn the basics.

In addition to learning/practicing coding, this year you also can earn Community Service Hours by completing one of the activities listed on the Community Service page of this website.

The Hour of Code 2020 is less than a week away and this webpage has been created for you as a seamless way to participate in this exciting initiative.
HOC 2020

What is the Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. Check out the tutorials and activities. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide.


When is the Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. The 2020 Computer Science Education Week will be December 7-13. Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).


Why computer science?

Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.
