Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10) is just around the corner and it is time to start planning to celebrate the week by organizing Hour of Code activities!
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. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 200,000 educators worldwide.
Code.org has provided a wealth of activities that can be used with students and adults of all ages. The sortable database, available at https://hourofcode.com/us/learn, provides both computer based (plugged) and non-computer based (unplugged) activities.
Explore the activities and find ways to hook your students on the wonders of coding and computer science!
