How to plan an Hour of Code activity at your Dojo!

What is The Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code is a worldwide initiative to demystify coding and to give people everywhere a basic introduction to Computer Science. Anyone, anywhere, can organise a one-hour activity in their local community as part of The Hour of Code โ€” so why not host an activity at your Dojo!

When does The Hour of Code take place?

You can host an Hour of Code event all year round, but typically The Hour of Code coincides with Computer Science Education Week in the USA, which will be December 9 to 15, 2019.
