Hour of Code Update 26 November 2013

The Hour of Code events for CS Ed Week is shaping up to be really big. Are you involved? Here's an update I got from the founder of code.org this week.

We announced the Hour of Code just weeks ago, and now 3 million students across almost 20,000 schools, in 150 countries have signed up. Wow.

This is shaping up to be the largest learning event in history. And we'd love your help to make it even bigger. Join us

Is your school on the list?
If not, tell a teacher you know to visit http://hourofcode.com to make history.

If each person reading this email asks one classroom to teach an Hour of Code, this movement will reach 20 million students.

Every child should learn computer science
Starting Dec. 9, anybody can learn the basics -- from Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Angry Birds, in over 20 languages. Set aside an hour to learn yourself, too.

Thank you for your support,

Hadi Partovi, founder, Code.org
