Computer Science Education Week is December 9-15! There will be a bunch of events including an Hour of Code. There are nearly 5 million students signed up to try computer science for the first time.
Why computer science?
Computer science provides a foundation for virtually any career – everybody can benefit from learning the basics. Visit Code.org for inspiration.
What’s an Hour of Code?
It’s a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator.
We’ll provide a variety of
self-guided tutorials that anybody can do, on a browser, tablet, or smartphone. We’ll even have unplugged tutorials for classrooms without computers. No experience needed.
“how to” video for more information. Check out the tutorials in beta.
Other CSEdWeek events
Computer Science Education Week is observed each year, in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
The Hour of Code is just one of many different events planned for CSEdWeek. If you are a CS teacher, see our
Participation Kit for CS Teachers, and if you plan a special event tell us about it so we can celebrate your hard work. Read more.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the
drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
