Hour of Code at ESD 105

ESD 105 is excited to announce our involvement in the Hour of Code Project for the 2023-2024 school year! The 'Hour of Code ® is a nationwide initiative by Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming. The activity is a phenomenal opportunity to expose students to the excitement, wonder, and empowerment capacity of Computer Science.

Code.org provides free online resources, including projects, video tutorials, and more pertaining to "Hour of Code" and a variety of Computer Science topics to help you get your event ready to launch. You may also visit the "Hour of Code Resources" page on our website.

This year, ESD 105 will begin celebrating Hour of Code alongside Computer Science Education Week (December 4 - 10, 2023) and continue through phased opportunities (range of dates) throughout the year. You may participate in as many phases for your event that meet your scheduling needs, and you may continue your CS related activities beyond your selected phase.
