Mark Zuckerberg, Angry Birds and Hackbright Academy Want 10 Million People To Code This December 9-15

SHARE

The Hour of Code is now just a few weeks away. If you haven’t heard already, we’re joining Mark Zuckerberg and Angry Birds in supporting this unprecedented movement to help 10 million students try computer science the week starting December 9-15, 2013.

We’re asking you to join us by hosting an Hour of Code for your organization!

For details, see this handout for teachers and this how-to video. Get started at http://hourofcode.com

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. Code.org 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.
