The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.

Did you know...

  • By the year 2020, its projected that there will be 1.4 million computing jobs but only 400,000 computer science students.
  • Less than 2.4% of college students graduate with a degree in computer science. And the numbers have dropped in the last decade.
  • While 57% of bachelor's degrees are earned by women, just 12% of computer science degrees are awarded to women.

An Hour of Code is designed to help change that! So participate, be inspired, make a difference!
