“Hour of Code” This Week

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

It’s not too late for students and educators to be part of the educational programming activities happening this week as part of the international Hour of Code. Many schools, individuals, and organizations are sponsoring and reporting these offerings during December 7-13, Computer Science Education Week.

The easiest way to participate is to direct students to one of the self-guided, hour-long tutorials on coding. The website, HourofCode.com, lists 191,000 events around the world, including more than 1200 in Wisconsin, and explains how to teach one Hour of Code.

The organization says nearly 150 million students have tried an Hour of Code, and that this number includes more girls than had tried computer science than in the entire previous history of the discipline.

Over 100 partners are supporting the effort.
