Why computer science?

Technology is everywhere today. But only a tiny fraction of students are learning how to create technology. The Hour of Code is a campaign to prove that every child can start learning the basics. will provide tutorials with options for every age, every device, and even “unplugged.” No prep from teachers needed.

While tutorials are still under construction, we invite you to check them out - featuring Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and Angry Birds.

2,000,000 students and growing!

Over 2 million students are already planning to participate in the Hour of Code across 144 countries! See schools participating in your area here.

This amazing milestone proves that the demand to catch up to the 21st century with relevant computer science education knows no boundaries.

Let’s open up a new world of opportunity for today’s generation of students. Join us now.
