Computer Science Education Week; December 3rd-9th

Join the Computing Department and over 100 million students and staff across the world, to complete an Hour of Code™

Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But only 35% of all high schools teach computer science. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this! If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.

With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code, and leaders like President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote their first lines of code as part of the campaign.

This year, let's make it even bigger. We are asking you to join the Hour of Code 2018.

With lots of self-guided tutorials designed for all ages and no experience needed, accessible in over 45 different languages, available on all devices and browsers (with unplugged activities also included); ANYONE can take part and have fun!

We will be asking for everyone to please get involved by completing an Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week, December 3-9. More information coming soon!
