Hour of Code: What is It?

75 Learners | 75 Completed Lessons | 19 Hours of Learning Time

Learning Activity

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, using fun tutorials to show that anybody can learn the basics. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide.  

Hour of Code is available year-round, but every year in December (5-11th) 2022 your class can join millions of students around the world celebrating Computer Science Education Week with the Hour of Code. Registration for the annual celebration starts each year in October.

But I don't know anything about coding?!

No problem, many Hour of Code activities are self-guided, and many lesson plans have been written for teachers without experience in computer science. All you have to do is pick the activity you want and pick an hour to do it in! Learn more about hosting an Hour of Code event here. 

There are also options for every age and experience level, from kindergarten and up. You can find all of the Hour of Code tutorials at code.org/learn.
