Are you looking to spark student interest in computer programming, even in the very youngest students? Would you like the opportunity to win prizes such as $10,000 for computer technology?
Look no further — Hour of Code is back and more fun than ever!
Hour of Code, sponsored by Code.org, is a free one-hour self-guided tutorial for students of all ages. Tutorials work on any modern browser, tablet, smartphone, or even with no computer at all! And, since Hour of Code is a global movement, tutorials are available in 40 languages.
The tutorials feature characters from Disney’s Frozen, Scrat from Ice Age, Angry Birds, and Plants vs. Zombies.
Hour of Code is scheduled to take place during Computer Science Education Week, December 7 to13, 2015. Every person who organizes Hour of Code participation in his or her school will receive a gift. One lucky school in the United States will win $10,000 worth of technology.
