Hour of Code
Hour of Code 2018 is back and this time it’ll be held at Microsoft on 8th 9th December so don’t miss out this free workshop!
What is Hour of Code?
The Hour of Code is a global movement by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries through a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming.
Why Hour of Code?
The Hour of Code is at its core not about learning a brand new skill in just one hour. One hour isn’t enough to learn how to code. It's about increasing access to computer science by breaking stereotypes and opening doors. Somebody may learn programming concepts like loops, conditionals, or basic debugging through the Hour of Code. But a much more important goal is for students and teachers to learn that computer science is fun — you can start at any age, in any classroom, even if you don’t have a computer.
The Hour of Code is not limited to one hour of coding. Thousands of the events during Computer Science Education Week go beyond one hour, and involve activities other than coding, all under the umbrella celebration of Hour of Code.
So, join us for an #hourofcode and explore the endless possibilities. Using resources from Code.org, we would like to introduce children to coding.
Parents and/or teachers are encouraged to sign up for their kids and/or students to participate in Hour of Code event.
