The Hour of Code

Hour of Code promotion.Our grades 1-5 students will partcipate in "The Hour of Code" during Computer Science Education Week, in December 2020. The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. It's a one-hour activity where students of all ages can choose from a variety of self-guided tutorials, from kindergarten on up. It is meant to be a spark to keep students learning computer science. Once students see what they create right before their eyes, they're empowered to keep learning. Below, are the links used during this week and beyond.

An Introduction to Coding

Write your first computer program using code.

code.orgCode.org - Learn the basic concepts of Computer Science with drag and drop programming. This is a game-like, self-directed tutorial starring video lectures by Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies. Learn repeat-loops, conditionals, and basic algorithms.


Hour of CodeThe Hour of Code - The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. Check out the tutorials and activities.


Code MonsterCode Monster - Code Monster from Crunchzilla is a very simple computer-programming tutorial that uses live JavaScript. It's intended to teach both kids and adults about the basic (and more complicated) things you can create using code. Lessons start simple and get increasingly complex, so kids of various ages can learn at their own levels.


Computer Science Ed WeekComputer Science Education Week - Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science.

blocklyBlockly - Blockly is a web-based, graphical programming editor. Users can drag blocks together to build an application. No typing required.


Made w/ code

CS First - CS First provides free, easy-to-use computer science enrichment materials that engage a diverse student population in grades 4-8 (ages 9-14). Facilitators use the video content to teach kids coding basics with Scratch, a block-based coding tool. CS First is available online and can be used by anyone, in any setting (in school, after school, or outside of school).


Khan AcademyKhan Academy's One Hour of Code - Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. We're a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere.


scratch from MITScratch from M.I.T. - Scratch is a free programming language and online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations.


TynkerTynker - Tynker's self-paced courses guide and inspire kids with zero programming experience, to create games,
stories and animations via puzzles, interactive tutorials and progressive challenges.
