Do you know how to code? Maybe you are a beginner, or even a professional. Everyone can benefit from Hour of Code, essentially a one-hour introduction to computer science. This initiative was created by code.org in order to make code easier to understand, as well as prove that anyone can learn the basics.
Computer science helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. This is extremely beneficial for students, giving them a foundation for sucess.
Launched in 2013, Code.org is a non-profit organisation that aims to make computer science more readily available in educational institutes. It also hopes to get more women into the field. They provide courses to teach code to children, and in line with their goal, came up with the Hour of Code. As of now, 50 million students have tried the Hour of Code.
These activities are simple, step-by-step tasks that introduce code. Geeks In Cambodia tried out the drag-and-drop style tutorials, and this is what goes on:
Have a go at some of these activities, or even introduce them to your younger siblings. Let us spread the code!
