Try an Hour of Code

| November 18, 2015
Computer Science Education Week

Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) from 7 to 13 December 2015 is dedicated to inspiring children to take interest in computer science. It’s a global initiative with Hour of Code events around the world.

Students from K to year 12 around Australia are invited to explore the computer science that drives the apps, games and websites on their devices. Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science as it helps with problem-solving skills, logic and creativity.

The Hour of Code during 7-13 December is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in more than 180 countries. One-hour tutorials are available in over 40 languages. No experience is needed.

CSEdWeek is produced by not-for-profit organisation, held in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (9 December 1906). has the vision that computer science should be part of the core curriculum in every school, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.
