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 30 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104.
The above quote is from the Hour of Code website. Coding is relevant to many subjects and areas of interest - students who learn to code learn to develop algorithms, solve problems and speak in an international language of code. We hope that all teachers will consider becoming involved in this year's event from .
Even if students don't have any school time during which they code in school, we hope they will want to participate from home.
I will be sending out a trivia question every school day during the event and I will give a prize to a student drawn from those with the most correct responses. More information about the trivia questions will be sent to advisors as the event approaches. In the meantime, you can find information about The Hour of Code at http://hourofcode.com/us and http://code.org/learn
Let the games begin!
