The Hour of Code is a global movement founded by Hadi Partovi to bring computer science skills to tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. This one-hour introduction to computer science shows that anyone can learn the basics of coding. Computer science helps to build problem solving skills, logic and creativity. No matter what career path a student may choose in life knowing these skills will help them be successful in the 21st century. CES 4th and 5th grade have caught the coding fever and will be dedicating time over the next week and half to learn some of the skills it takes to write code.
