The Hour of Code

Hello all!

So, I've already told you guys about the hour of code but just in case I haven't, or you would like to know more about it. Here are the details!

(I took a lot of this right from their website)

What's an Hour of Code?

It's a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code" and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator.

We'll provide a variety of self-guided tutorials that anybody can do, on a browser, tablet, or smartphone. We'll even have unplugged tutorials for classrooms without computers. No experience needed.

Watch this "how to" video for more information. Check out the tutorials in beta.

Why computer science?

Computer science provides a foundation for virtually any career - everybody can benefit from learning the basics. Visit Code.org for inspiration. 

So here are the Details... (tentatively)
