Computer science is foundational for all students today. Yet 90% of schools don’t teach it. Last December, 15 million students tried computer science in one week, thanks to educators like you! Since then, over 40 million students have tried the Hour of Code.
Hour of Code 2014 – let’s reach 100 million students
Please help this grassroots, teacher-driven campaign reach 100 million students by the end of the year. Sign up to participate in Hour of Code 2014 during December 8-14, Computer Science Education Week.
What’s an Hour of Code?
It’s an introduction to computer science designed to show that anyone can learn the basics. Code.org provides hour-long tutorials featuring Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Angry Birds, and Plants vs. Zombies — for your computer, tablet, smartphone, or with no computer at all!
No experience needed from teachers and students
We owe it to today’s students to start with one hour. Let’s make history.
