Largest Coding Event Ever

While physics, chemistry, and biology are a norm at all schools, computer science is still a nascent subject. It is estimated that just 10 percent of American schools offer computer science and only 19% of high school students graduate with the course under their belt. Seattle-based non-profit Code.org wants to change that by exposing every student in the world to this all important science that is the basis of the digital world we live in.

From December 7 -11 millions of kids across the globe will spend at least sixty minutes learning the basics of computer science. Called “Hour of Code” the initiative is designed to demystify the world of coding and inspire students of all backgrounds to consider a career in software engineering.
