An Hour of Code Demystifies Computer Programing – Dec 9-15

An Hour of Code Demystifies Computer Programing – Dec 9-15

Computer Science Education Week is offering FREE on-line video tutorials to millions of students through its ‘1 Hour of Code’ initiative.

What’s an Hour of Code?

It’s a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator.

We’ll provide a variety of self-guided tutorials that anybody can complete, with just a web-browser, tablet, or smartphone. We’ll even have unplugged tutorials for classrooms without computers. No experience is needed.

Watch this “how to” video for more information.

Why Computer Science?

Computer Science provides a foundation for virtually any career — everybody can benefit from learning the basics.

Other CSEdWeek events

Computer Science Education Week is observed each year, in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).

The Hour of Code is just one of many different events planned for CSEdWeek. If you are a CS teacher, see our Participation Kit for CS Teachers, and if you plan a special event tell us about it so we can celebrate your hard work.
