Code.org is organizing the Hour of Code, a massive campaign to recruit 10 million students to try one hour of computer science during Computer Science Education Week December 7-11, 2020.
Why Computer Science?
Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. Basic programming activities help nurture creativity and problem solving skills. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any future career path.
Computer programming jobs are growing 3x faster than students entering the field. Yet fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. 90% of K-12 schools in the United States don’t even teach it.

A self-guided activity for students of all ages.
Tutorials will feature lectures from Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates, and artwork from popular games Angry Birds and Minecraft.
