Hour of Code

Hour of Code is coming—and we're so excited for you to join us!
This year we have plenty of ways to participate and a new theme to kick off this worldwide week of computer science.

The theme for this year’s Hour of Code: #CSEverywhere
From fighting disease to exploring outer space, from creating your favorite movies to powering the device you're reading this on, computer science is everywhere! Help students discover the connections to CS in their lives during this year’s Hour of Code from December 6–12, 2021.

Our goal is to make students aware that computer science is used in every industry and field of study to help solve problems, advance research, create art, keep our infrastructure safe and healthy, and more. We hope this inspires students of all ages to connect their passions to CS and continue learning beyond the Hour of Code.

Still supporting remote learning

Whether you’re teaching in person or continuing remote learning, there’s an Hour of Code activity for you! Our How-To Guides will show you how to adapt for in-person, virtual, or no-tech options for students with limited internet access.

How YOU can get involved

You don’t have to be an educator in order to host an Hour of Code at homewith a classroom, or with your company. You don’t have to be an engineer in order to volunteer virtually with a classroom and share how technology has impacted your life. Best of all, you don’t have to be a computer scientist in order to spread the word: Share your Hour of Code highlights with us on social media! We love seeing your classroom videos, photos, and student projects using #HourofCode. You can also show us your favorite example of computer science in action by tagging it with #CSEverywhere!

We can’t wait to share our new Hour of Code activities with you—stay tuned for more updates!
