Celebrate Computer Science Education Week by Participating in Hour of Code
Computing is a fundamental part of daily life, commerce and just about every occupation in our modern economy. Learning about computer science and technology will help students in virtually any career—from architecture to zoology. Please join us in promoting exposure to computer science during National Computer Science Education Week by participating in this year’s Hour of Code Contest.
