How to do an Hour of Code with your child

Complete an Hour of Code at home or volunteer to bring it to your child’s classroom!

1) 观看指导视频

2) Choose a tutorial

We provide a variety of fun, hour-long tutorials for students of all ages, created by a variety of partners. Try them out!

All Hour of Code tutorials are self-guided - allowing your child to work at their own pace and skill level

3) 考虑你所需要的设备

The best Hour of Code experience will be with Internet-connected computers. But you don’t need a computer. There are many activities that are "unplugged" and can be done without any technology at all. Test tutorials on your computer or device. Make sure they work properly on browsers with sound and video.

Want to learn alongside your child? Try pair programming. Computer science is social and collaborative.

4) Start your Hour of Code with an inspiring video




  • Explain ways technology impacts our lives, with examples both boys and girls will care about (Talk about saving lives, helping people, connecting people, etc.).
  • 列举日常生活中需要使用程序的情况。
  • See tips for getting girls interested in computer science here.






  • "我也不知道。让我们一起来找到问题的答案吧"。
  • “科学技术并不总是同我们期望的方式一样工作。”
  • “学习编程就像是学习一门新的语言(事实上就是-我们一直都将学习编程称作学习编程语言,你现在学的这种叫Blocky?);你不会马上就说得很流利。”


Print certificates for your child (and yourself!).
