Computer Science teachers: The Hour of Code will be a great tool for recruiting students to computer science. To organize other activities, see our guide for CS teachers. If you plan a special event, check the “special event” box on the right and tell us about it!
What happens after you sign up: We’ll send you materials and reminders to ensure your event goes smoothly. We have a variety of hour-long tutorials that you can choose from. Most will work in any web browser, on a PC, Mac, tablet, or even smartphone. We will even have fun “unplugged” tutorials that require no computers if you don’t have access to enough devices.

Other Computer Science Education Week events
Computer Science Education Week is observed each year, in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
The Hour of Code is just one of many different events planned for CS EdWeek. If you are a CS teacher, see our Participation Kit for CS Teachers, and if you plan a special event tell us about it so we can celebrate your hard work.
