Organize an Hour of Code in Your Community During Computer Science Education Week, December 9-15
November 21, 2019
The Hour of Code has introduced over 800 million students in more than 180 countries to computer science. ACM (a partner of Code.org, a coalition of organizations dedicated to expanding participation in computer science) encourages you to host an Hour of Code in your community and give students an opportunity to gain the skills needed for creating technology that’s changing the world.
Now in its sixth year, the Hour of Code is a global movement designed to generate excitement in young people about programming and technology. Games, tutorials, and other events are organized by local volunteers from schools, research institutions, and other groups during Computer Science Education Week, December 9-15. This year, Hour of Code will highlight how we can all use computer science to make a positive impact, with the theme, “Learn Computer Science. Change the World.”
Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event, and anyone from ages 4 to 104 can try the one-hour tutorials, which are available in more than 45 languages. Learn more about how to teach an Hour of Code and how to promote your event.
