Hour of Code

The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. The 2018 Computer Science Education Week will be December 3-9 2018. To celebrate in the momentum, we joined in the kick off of Computer Science Education Week and made history with the biggest Hour of Code yet.

24,000 teachers, and nearly 200 governments, school districts, universities, and organisations pledge to expand CS for millions of students worldwide. St Joseph's School is a part of this exciting pledge.

In total, these pledges will affect nearly 3 million students. An additional 24,000 teachers have pledged to expand computer science programs in their individual schools and classrooms.
