Hour of Code takes place every year during Computer Science Education Week. Students in over 180 countries participate. At South School we will participate in our own coding activities during the week of December 18-21st. Anytime is a good time to learn about code. Check out these websites below. Remember, children under the age of 13 should not create their own accounts but parents can do it for you.
