Host an Hour of Code Event at your Dojo!

The Hour of Code, like CoderDojo, is a global movement. While CoderDojo is about regularly engaging young people to create with technology, the Hour of Code offers a useful way to encourage young people to try coding for the first time. The Hour of Code has already reached tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone including Dojos can organize an Hour of Code event. Dojos can use it to reach even more young people in their local area with one-hour tutorials available in over 45 languages, which require no previous experience to complete.
