Hour of Code – Join the largest learning event in history @codeorg #HourOfCode #makereducation

HourOfCode logo RGB

Hour of Code is here! Together with Computer Science Education Week, Code.org brings you Hour of Code – an international education initiative created to increase computer science involvement and awareness across the globe. Get involved or check out the details here!

Here’s a bit of general info about CSEdWeek:

Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) was founded as a call to action to raises awareness about the need to elevate computer science education at all levels and to underscore the critical role of computing in all careers.

The first CSEdWeek was launched by ACM on December 6 – 12 2009. It was a joint effort led and funded by ACM with the cooperation and deep involvement of CSTA, NCWIT, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Anita Borg Institute (ABI), the Computing Research Association (CRA), Google, Inc., Intel, and Microsoft. ACM’s Education Policy Committee worked closely with Congressmen Vernon Ehlers (R-MI) and Jared Polis (D-CO) to introduce a Congressional Resolution recognizing the first CSEdWeek. Congressman Ehlers introduced the resolution after being alerted to declining enrollments in computer science studies by Professor Joel Adams of the Department of Computer Science at Calvin College. The intent is CSEdWeek will be celebrated each year during the week of Grace Hopper’s birthday on December 9.
