Hour of Code is coming and it is a global movement, bigger than ever!
- 93,860 Hour of Code events reached over 100,000 students in 180 countries last year.
- Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event.
- The grassroots campaign goal is for students to try an Hour of Code anytime during the week of December 7-13, in celebration of Computer Science Education Week.
- One-hour tutorials are available in over 40 languages. Ages 4 to 104, no experience is needed.
- Teacher (Librarian) Led Hour of Code Lesson Plans are available to help too.
It is especially exciting to see the surge of girls participating in this empowering skill. Go to the main Hour of Code site, read through the FAQ’s right off the main page to get questions answered. Although some may think this is only school centered, it could be a great makerspace activity too!
CMLE staff would love to share your Hour of Code success stories. Be sure to send us who, what, when and where after your event and include Hour of Code in the subject line.
