What is the Hour of Code?

     The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics.  Coding is an  important 21st century skill that helps students develop logic and problem solving skills while encouraging creativity.The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. The 2016 Computer Science Education Week will be December 5-11. The Hour of Code is designed so that everyone can participate! There is no age limit!
