What is Hour of Code?

Hour of Code is a worldwide initiative to introduce people to coding skills. It's a one-hour event to teach computer skills and show that anyone can learn to code! Millions of people & students across the globe will participate in the annual Hour of Code, which is the first week in December! Come join the fun with our NMES students!

  • 2nd-3rd grade students will all learn coding skills by learning and using Beebots and Ozobots in the media center
  • 4th-5th grade students will all learning coding skills by using tutorials from Code.org and the iPad app OSMO coding in the media center
  • students also learn to use Dot & Dash and Microbits for extended coding fun!
