Organize an Hour of Code in Your Community During Computer Science Education Week, December 4 – 10

November 14, 2023

The Hour of Code has introduced more than 1.7 billion students to computer science in more than 180 countries and 45 languages. Hour of Code is a global movement designed to generate excitement in young people about programming and technology, taking place during Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) December 4–10, with games, tutorials, and experiences organized by local volunteers from schools, research institutions, and other groups. CSEdWeek is the perfect time to inspire students and their families to learn more about computer science, connect with others in the CS community, and take part in the scheduled events along with millions around the world.

Anyone anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event and enjoy any of a number of fun, engaging, and educational projects which are available in several languages. Learn more about how to plan an Hour of Code and how to promote an event.

The Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) will kick off CSEdWeek with “Impacts of Computing,” in which a panel of 2023 CS Heroes will speak about computing’s positive and negative effects on various aspects of our lives including education, privacy, security, and accessibility. The event will be livestreamed on December 4, 7–8 pm EST (12–1 am UTC). Register here.
