Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. However, only 51% of all high schools offer classes in computer science. The good news is, we’re on our way to change this! If you’ve heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.
With the Hour of Code from Code.org, computer science has been on the homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code, and leaders like former President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote their first lines of code as part of the campaign.
This year, let’s make it even bigger. I’m asking you to join the
Hour of Code 2023. Please get involved with an Hour of Code
event during Computer Science Education Week, December 4-10.
Get the word out. Host an event. Ask local schools to sign up. Or try the Hour of Code yourself—everyone can benefit from learning the basics.
