How your company can engage with the Hour of Code

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, using fun tutorials to show that anybody can learn the basics. This year, we're taking Hour of Code to new heights by offering coding opportunities that encompass both artificial intelligence (AI) and non-AI components.

All of your efforts can make a huge impact on the way young women and students from marginalized racial and ethnic groups view computer science and their own potential.


Inspire your employees

Share this video at an All Staff meeting or in an email to all employees to show how companies like yours can make a huge impact on the global movement to bring computer science education to all students in all schools through the Hour of Code.

Before Hour of Code


Encourage employees to volunteer

One of the most fulfilling ways to participate in the Hour of Code is to volunteer with a local classroom, either in-person or virtually. Best of all, you don't have to be an engineer or someone with a technical background in order to volunteer. You can still provide a meaningful experience to students by sharing your own career experience and how computer science or technology has impacted your role. Direct your employees to the volunteer guide to learn more.

Plan an internal event

The Hour of Code isn't just for K-12 students but for learners of all ages and all skill levels. Connect with your company's events team to host an Hour of Code event for all employees.

Make an early commitment and register your event in advance. When you register, you'll receive helpful emails with news and tips for hosting a successful Hour of Code. You'll also be put on the map. The visible totality of our collective efforts demonstrates the global commitment to the computer science movement, which will help us build momentum for systemic change.

Register your event

Choose your activities

This year, the Hour of Code theme is Creativity with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Whether it’s coding new apps and algorithms, generating unique art, or crafting choreography to get us dancing, AI is opening up fresh opportunities for digital expression that expand our understanding of creativity. Make this year special by completing a coding activity AND learning about AI.

Day of Hour of Code

First, explore hundreds of coding activities and choose one based on your group's age, experience, interests and more. These select activities feature artificial intelligence as a key topic or lesson.

Then, learn all about AI. Employees can watch short videos featuring experts in the field.


Help spread the word

After your event, congratulate your employees with personalized certificates of completion. Share photos and videos of your Hour of Code event and show off your commitment to supporting the computer science movement using #HourOfCode and @codeorg.

Beyond Hour of Code

Computer science doesn't have to end with the Hour of Code! While 90% of parents want their child to learn computer science, most schools still don't teach it and hundreds of thousands of jobs go unfilled. Learn how to bring computer science to more schools in your area and advocate for computer science to be a graduation requirement.
