What Is the Hour of Code?

Sometimes called the world's largest learning moment in history, the Hour of Code is an international educational program designed to promote computer science in schools around the world. With kids from more than 180 countries involved since the program's inception in 2013, Hour of Code allows children of all ages to code in some way — whether it's on a computer, tablet, smartphone, or a printable worksheet — to show that literally anybody can learn the basics of computer science.

When Is Hour of Code 2022?

Hour of Code is held annually during Computer Science Education Week in December. In 2022, CSEd Week, as it is also called, is being celebrated from December 5 to 11. Do you want your students to participate in the Hour of Code but have no idea about coding? Well, don’t worry! We have you covered with this collection of coding resources to get you started.
