Why Hour of Code

Why Hour of Code

Why it's important to learn how to code? Nine out of ten K-12 schools don't even offer computer programming classes. Computer science is one of the highest-paid college degree for new graduates. Computer programming jobs are growing at two times the national average – but there aren't enough graduates to fill these jobs. Last year, 15 million K-12 students tried an Hour of Code in one week. Once students see what they create right before their eyes, they're empowered to keep learning.
