Technology is everywhere today. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how to create it. The Hour of Code is 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.

Code.org will provide a variety of self-guided tutorials that anybody can do, on a browser, tablet, or smartphone. There’s even unplugged tutorials for classrooms without computers. No experience needed.

Get started at www.code.org.

The Hour of Code just one of many different events planned for Computer Science Education Week (December 9-15, 2013).
