Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science.

Originally conceived by the Computing in the Core coalition, Code.orgĀ® organizes CSEdWeek as a grassroots campaign supported by 350 partners and 100,000 educators worldwide.

CSEdWeek is held in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).

Families welcome!

At this free, family-friendly Hour of Code event, we welcome all individuals, ages 6 to 106, to be a student and receive an introductory experience with coding and computer science in a safe, supportive environment. Students chose themes of Minecraft, Moana or Star Wars for their hands-on project. Snacks and a completion certificate for each student will be provided!

NOTE: Please register each student separately (including adults who want to join in) so we have an accurate accounting of how many computers will be required.

The Hour of Code is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming. 

YouthCode is a program of Impacting The Next Generation Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
