The Hour of Code

The Hour of Code & 

Computer Science Week

The TCSOS Hour of Code event occurs each year during Computer Science Education Week. The 2022 Computer Science Education Week will be December 4-10. Computer Science Education Week is held annually to recognize the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).

The Hour of Code celebration also provided an opportunity to raise awareness of California’s first computer science standards, adopted by the State Board of Education in September 2021. The standards are designed to help students advance from passive technology users to creators and innovators who use computers to change the world. The standards cover five core computer science concepts, including Algorithms, Programming, Data and Analysis, and seven core practices, such as inclusion, communication, and collaboration. The standards also emphasize equity by providing educators with guidance on how to broaden participation in computer science to include students from underrepresented populations.
