Are you ready? Computer Science Education Week is in less than a month — and it’s the perfect time to plan your Hour of Code event! We hope you’re excited and have registered your classroom or school event with us.

Remember: This year, we’re taking Hour of Code to new heights with “Hour of Code: Creativity with AI.” Whether it’s coding new apps and algorithms, generating unique art, or crafting choreography to get us dancing, AI is opening up fresh opportunities for digital expression that expand our understanding of creativity.

As usual, our fantastic teacher review board has meticulously tested and evaluated over 100 new Hour of Code activities submitted this year — many teaching AI concepts. They’ve handpicked a few that have the biggest potential to surprise and delight your classroom. Take a look and start making your plan for Computer Science Education Week!

My Q

Students will learn about cause and effect (event-driven programming) and user interactions to solve fun, visual challenges like helping a cute dog find its bones.

Fan Page

Students will learn HTML to create a webpage for a review of a movie, show, book, or anything else they like!

Balancing Act

Create an interactive game using Tynker’s Physics and AI pose tracking libraries. Players balance an object by moving their face on camera!

Fruit Fighter

Create a fun Fruit Ninja-style game that recognizes on-camera hand movements using p5.js.

Minecraft Hour of Code: Generation AI

Venture through time to create your AI-powered inventions in the new Minecraft Hour of Code: Generation AI. Use problem solving, creativity, and computational thinking with the principles of Responsible AI. Check out the teaser video now.

We have even more exciting activity updates to come, so stay tuned! In the meantime, if you’re in the United States register a whole-school Hour of Code event and receive an awesome new swag kit. Let’s get ready for the best Hour of Code ever!
