Every year, millions of students from around the world participate in Hour of Code, a week-long global movement that encourages students to participate in activities that provide a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming.
For the second year in a row, Hour of Code participants were entered into a prize draw, with coding-themed prizes available to any student who completed at least one Hour of Code activity. The prizes for this year were a Dot Creativity Kit (ES), Sphero Mini (ES), Star Wars R2D2 Droid (MS), or a CoDrone Pro Programmable Drone (HS). Congratulations to the Hour of Code raffle prize winners!
If you would like to continue to develop your coding abilities or were not able to participate in Hour of Code week, we want to encourage all parents, students, and teachers to try out a coding activity at Hour of Code 2018 and go Beyond an Hour of Code!
