The Hour of Code – 3rd to 9th March 2014


By 

March 3th - 9th will mark the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web and what could be a better way of celebrating it then mastering the art of coding? Code.org is bringing Hour of Code to schools nationwide to get students, teachers and parents to learn the basics of coding in just one hour.

Complementing the Government’s Year of Code 2014 campaign, Hour of Code will be a fundamental part of preparing teachers and students for the curriculum changes that will cover computer science from September 2014.


In the course of Hour of Code students will be able to learn the basic skills of computer programming in 60 minutes, through fun tutorials. Suitable for all ages and abilities, neither students nor teachers need any prior experience to use the self-guided materials that are accessible for free on the UK Hour of Code website.
