Learn More About Hour of Code for kids

Mose frequent questions and answers.

Hour of Code, as the name suggests, began as a one-hour introductory lesson in Computer Science, stressing its importance in the 21st century and demonstrating that computer programming is not something to fear, but on the contrary, can easily become second nature. Today, Hour of Code has grown from an hour to a week-long, worldwide initiative that promotes computer programming. Many companies, such as Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and more are behind this initiative.

Hour of Code takes place annually during the CSEdWeek (Computer Science Education Week). The dates slightly vary from year to year as Hour of Code is held in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906). This year, Hour of Code 2019 will take place during December 9-15.

Learning how to code helps nurture a variety of fundamental skills such as creativity, logic, critical thinking and problem solving skills. Through being introduced to coding early on, students can better prepare for the challenges of the 21st Century. As computer usage increasingly saturates society, it’s up to future engineers to innovate and design software to improve quality of life.
