Millions of students from around the world will take part in Hour of Code over the next few days as part of Computer Science Education week, Dec. 7-12.
Hour of Code is a global initiative designed to demystify code and demonstrate that computer science is not only a crucial skill for students, but that it can also be fun and creative.
To that end, Code.org has partnered with companies like Microsoft and Disney to provide free, themed tutorials and templates. Students as young as four are offered a unique “behind the scenes” perspective of what goes into building games like Minecraft.
A comprehensive list of tutorials and resources is available at www.hourofcode.org.
