The Hour of Code is coming!

What is it?

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 30 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104.

We are encouraging teachers to give their students an opportunity to explore computer programming for at least one hour. Not one hour each day…one hour total. The goal is not to create proficient programmers, instead to introduce the idea of coding and give students an opportunity to explore. You do not need to understand computer programming. You just need to be brave enough to allow your students the chance to explore. One hour of your time might make a lifetime of difference for your students.

We've included links below for resources on how to teach the Hour of Code. Some activities don''t even require a computer! Anyone can do it! Will you?
