What is the Hour of Code?
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science designed for anyone interested in learning to code. No experience needed! Anyone at any age can learn the basics.

Everything you need to get started can be found here. You can also organize an Hour of Code event at your school or in your community!
What devices should my students use for the Hour of Code?
- Work in pairs. Research shows students learn best with pair programming, sharing a computer and working together. Encourage your students to double up.
- Use a projected screen. If you have a projector and screen for a Web-connected computer, your entire group can do an Hour of Code together. Watch video portions together and take turns solving puzzles or answering questions.
- Go unplugged. We offer tutorials that require no computer at all. https://hourofcode.com/ca
