What is the Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code” and broaden participation in the field of computer science.  It has since become a worldwide celebration of computer science, starting with one-hour coding activities and expanding to all sorts of community efforts.

When is the Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week, running December 3-9 this year.

Did you know?

The week was selected to recognize the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).

Why computer science?

Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. See more stats here.
