We hope you can join us for a panel on the ethics of AI.

Join us to explore AI in a new video series, tune in to our panelist discussion on December 8th, and help our bot, A.I., clean the oceans. We also have a brand new AI page with even more resources and lessons.

Tools for everyone to enjoy the Hour of Code

We’ve also created a printable Hour of Code Unplugged Activity Packet for ages 4–18 so that students using limited technology at home can still participate. Plus, there are new unplugged activity options from our partners at Google, Kodable, iRobot, and more.

With classroom instruction becoming increasingly virtual this year, there has never been a more important time to introduce computer science. It’s vital that every student understands not only how to use these technologies, but how they work, how they’re built, and how to think about them through the lens of CS for Good.

Every child deserves to learn computer science. By learning today, they can build a brighter tomorrow.
