Hour of Code

Hour of Code 2017 is here!

This year's Hour of Code is packed with old favorites and new challenges!  Younger students can learn about the basics of sequences, loops, and events, while older students can try their hand at Javascript, Python, or HTML!
The list below features challenges organized by grade level and difficulty.  In addition, you will also find icons for supported platforms for each activity (Desktop, iOS, and Chrome).  Feel free to try any of these activities, and make sure to have lots of fun!
