Hour of Code 2018
Appropriate for all students and adults. This can easily be done as a family project, or child can work alone at their own speed. The project goal is to expose all school aged children to at least 1 hour of code during Computer Science Week that celebrates the birthday of Grace Murry Hopper. The site remains open 24/7 all year long. There are hundreds of activities that encourage computational thinking.
Code.org® is a nonprofit dedicated to expanding . Our vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra. Code.org also organizes the annual Hour of Code campaign which has engaged 10% of all students in the world. Code.org is supported by generous donors including Amazon, Facebook, Google, the Infosys Foundation, Microsoft, and many more.
