Received this update email from Code.org last night. Looks like an Hour of Code for CS Education week is getting real! And of course it is getting close. Now though you can try out some of the exercises people have been preparing. You may find something that will work for your at your school or a school near you.
Hour of Code tutorials are ready to try -- with options for every age, every device, and even "unplugged." While this is still a work-in-progress, we invite you to check out the options, and give us feedback.
In particular, Code.org’s own tutorials are ready for preview - learn basic sequencing, repeat loops, and if-then statements from Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, and Angry Birds.
1,500,000 students and growing
We just passed 1.5 million students planning to participate in the Hour of Code across 141 countries! It’s now on track to be the largest online education event in history, proving that the demand for relevant 21st century computer science education knows no boundaries. See every school participating here.
Join now to win laptops or a video chat with Bill Gates.
Odds of winning are still exceptionally high in many states. To qualify:
- Register for your entire school to participate in the Hour of Code by Nov. 15.
- Then, email us your school’s Hour of Code “logistics plan” to firstname.lastname@example.org to enter the running for a class-set of laptops. Details
