Yesterday we joined Code.org to support the Hour of Code. It’s the largest initiative of its kind: a campaign from Code.org to recruit 10 million kids to try computer science for one hour during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 9-15).

We’re thrilled to join Microsoft, Google, Apple, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and over 100 others, to make history. We’re asking for your help.

Calling all students — regardless of age 

Computer science is foundational for all students today, yet 90% of schools don’t teach it. This is a chance to inspire underserved students to achieve the 21st century American Dream.

What’s an Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code is an introduction to computer science designed to demystify code and show kids that it’s fun to learn the basics. Code.org will provide tutorials that require no prior experience — on a browser, smartphone, or even “unplugged.”

 

Prizes for EVERY educator! EVERY educator who registers to host an Hour of Code will receive 10GB of free DropBox storage as a thank you gift. Just register participation
