What is the Hour of Code? Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to show that anybody can learn the basics of coding, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science.
When is the Hour of Code? The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week; December 4-10 this year.
Hour of Code is a great program that is fun and easy to organize. The Hour of Code website has directions for activities both live and virtual and general advice for putting on a successful event. Code.org, one of the event sponsors, has additional activities and ideas for patrons who fall in love with coding and want to learn more. Code.org’s free curriculums are perfect for creating an after-school coding club for any age range.
