5 Hour of Code activities students will love

Get ready for CS Education Week and Hour of Code!

5 fun ways to learn to code in an hour

Join people across the globe who are making cool things with code by participating in Hour of Code this week. Hour of Code is a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science and make it more accessible to everyone through fun coding projects. At a time when women still receive only 19% of computer science degrees – and women of color only receive 4% of computer science degrees – introductory programs that demystify computer science and give young people a chance to learn about code in a hands-on way can make a big difference. To participate, all you have to do is pledge to spend one hour doing a coding activity (on your own, with your students, or as a family) during Computer Science Education week – we’ve selected some of our favorite (and free!) Hour of Code activities below.
