The Hour of Code

hour-of-code
The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 45 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104.

Over the last three years the Hour of Code has reached more than 100 million students in over 180 countries. Last year, you helped make this the largest learning event in history, with record participation from girls and underrepresented minorities.

This year, help us reach every student with the opportunity to learn.

Computers are changing every industry on the planet, and coding has become relevant to a wide range of high-paying jobs—even those outside the technology and engineering fields. For millions of students, the Hour of Code will be an inspiring introduction to this crucial 21st century skill.

Want a technology professional to volunteer in your classroom?

Check out our volunteer database and schedule a classroom visit! We’re excited to be working with both independent professionals and volunteers from huge tech brands to make the Hour of Code even more special!

I’d like to personally thank every educator who’s hosted an Hour of Code so far. You’ve been an inspiration to all of us at Code.org. Thank you for your support, and for all you do for the children of our world.

We hope your students have an amazing time!

Hadi Partovi and the Code.org team
