AN HOUR OF CODE

An Hour of Code is an introduction to computer science designed to demystify coding and show that anyone can learn the basics. Come play in the CODE.

“We owe it to today’s students to start with one hour. Let’s make history.”

FAQ

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts.

The event is going to take place from January 15 – 17, 2021. Normally the Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week, but it can be hosted all year-round. Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).

Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. See more stats here.

The HOC exercises tutorials work on all devices and browsers.

No. We have Hour of Code tutorials that work on PCs, smartphones, tablets, and some that require no computer at all! You can join wherever you are, with whatever you have.Here are a few options: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.

You can print the certificate of participation as soon as your children complete the HOC activities. You can also acquire the certificates from our office at Dembel City Center, Addis Abeba, Ethiopia.

We’ll send you recommendation of HOC activities you can choose from based on their age and grade.

The goal of the Hour of Code is not to teach anybody to become an expert computer scientist in one hour. One hour is only enough to learn that computer science is fun and creative, that it is accessible at all ages, for all students, regardless of background. The measure of success of this campaign is not in how much CS students learn – the success is reflected in broad participation across gender and ethnic and socioeconomic groups, and the resulting increase in enrollment and participation we see in CS courses at all grade levels. Millions of the participating teachers and students have decided to go beyond one hour – to learn for a whole day or a whole week or longer, and many students have decided to enroll in a whole course (or even a college major) as a result.

Besides the students, another “learner” is the educator who gains the confidence after one hour that they can teach computer science even though they may not have a college degree as a computer scientist. Tens of thousands of teachers decide to pursue computer science further, either attending PD or offering follow-on online courses, or both. And this applies to school administrators too, who realize that computer science is something their students want and their teachers are capable of.

Above all, what all participants can learn in an hour is that we can do this.
