The Hour of Code has introduced more than one and a half billion students in more than 180 countries to computer science. It is a global movement designed to generate excitement in young people about programming and technology, taking place during Computer Science Education Week, December 5–11, with games, tutorials, and other experiences organized by local volunteers from schools, research institutions, and other groups. CSEdWeek is the perfect time to inspire students and their families to learn more about computer science, connect with others in the CS community, and take part in the scheduled events along with millions around the world.
Anyone anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event, and anyone from ages 4 to 104 can enjoy any of a number of fun, engaging, and educational projects which are available in several languages. Learn more about how to host an Hour of Code and how to promote an event.The Computer Science Teachers Association(CSTA) will kick off CSEdWeek with a panel comprised of its 2022 CS Heroes who will discuss their own journeys to computer science, what has inspired them, and their recommendations for how we can continue to advance so that every student has an equal opportunity to learn computer science. The event will be livestreamed on December 5, at 1 pm EST (6 pm UTC). Register here.
