Hour of Code

Last year, 15 million students tried an Hour of Code in one week. Join students all over the world for an Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week, December 8-14. They are aiming for 100 million students worldwide to do an Hour of Code by the end of 2014!

What is the Hour of Code?

A one-hour activity. Students of all ages can choose from a variety of self-guided tutorials, from kindergarten up. Tutorials work on any modern browser, tablet, smartphone, or even with no computer at all. Code.org’s own tutorial features Angry Birds, Plants vs. Zombies and video lectures from Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates. No experience needed from teachers and students. Anyone, anywhere in the world can organize an Hour of Code event. Tutorials are available in over 30 languages.
