Start your Hour of Code on Khan Academy

2015-12-07 13:00:32 GMT

At Khan Academy, we know how important computer science and computer programming are - in fact, the Khan Academy website wouldn’t exist if Sal didn’t know how to code! That’s why we participate in Code.org’s Hour of Code campaign every year during Computer Science Education Week - we want to make sure every student gets to learn the basics of coding.

From December 7 to 13, millions of students around the world will be learning to code - in classrooms, in after-school clubs, and with parents at home. We invite you to join the #HourOfCode movement by learning to code here on Khan Academy, picking from one of our three tutorials:

Hour of Drawing with Code: Learn to program using JavaScript, one of the world’s most popular programming languages, via two great options:
- Drag-and-drop: block-based coding for those with less typing experience or on tablet devices (ages 8+).
- Typing: keyboard-based coding (ages 10+).

Hour of Webpages: Learn to make your own webpages using the basics of HTML and CSS (ages 10+).

Hour of Databases: Learn the fundamentals of databases using SQL to create tables with data and query the data (ages 12+).

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating Computer Science Education Week and spend an hour on Khan Academy learning to code!
