Cómo hacer una Hora de Código con tus hijos

Trying an Hour of Code is a simple and fun way to introduce your child to computer science, perhaps for the very first time. Not only is computer science foundational to all fields of study, but recent studies show: children who study computer science perform better in other subjects, excel at problem-solving, and are 17% more likely to enroll in college.

You and your child can join tens of millions of students worldwide in this global event. Together, we can inspire kids to learn, break stereotypes, and help children discover a newfound interest. Best of all, you already have everything you need to bring the Hour of Code into your home!

Este año, el tema de la Hora del Código es "Creatividad con inteligencia artificial (IA). Ya sea programando nuevas aplicaciones y algoritmos, generando obras de arte únicas o creando coreografías para ponernos a bailar, la IA está abriendo nuevas oportunidades para la expresión digital que amplían nuestra comprensión de la creatividad. Haz que este año sea especial realizando una actividad de programación Y aprendiendo sobre la IA.

Primero, explora cientos de actividades de programación y elige una de acuerdo a la edad, experiencia, intereses y más de tu grupo. Estas actividades selectas incluyen la inteligencia artificial como tema o lección clave.

Then, learn all about AI. Students can watch short videos featuring experts in the field, and there are accompanying lesson plans to extend the activity and guide further discussion.


Get coding!

Direct your child to the activity and get to work together. They may encounter challenges—that's okay! Learning to program is like learning a new language; you won't be fluent right away. Computer science is all about learning how to "debug" situations that didn't turn out the way we thought they would. Together, you and your child can think of creative ways to solve the problem!
