Teachers,

The Hour of Code Week is Here!

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.


With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. Over 100 partners joined together to support this movement. Last year, every Apple Store in the world hosted an Hour of Code and even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.


If you’re interested in trying the Hour of Code in your classroom, which takes little effort from you other than directing students to all the available links on any device, please take a look at the resources below. It only takes an hour or less and students participate in self-directed activities!


If participating, please share an image or more in the YAPP app.


Happy Coding!
