hour of code

Each year, we celebrate Computer Science Education Week (the first week of December) by mobilizing hundreds of volunteers around Indianapolis to assist local students in completing their first Hour of Code. Since 2015, we've grown our Hour of Code event from a one-hour celebration impacting ~300 students, to a multi-day, multi-school event engaging 1,200+ students all over the city. 

Will you celebrate Computer Science Education Week with us this year?

Volunteers

This year, we're looking for 250 volunteers to help us provide hands-on computer science learning for classrooms all over Indianapolis. No experience? No problem! Our Hour of Code volunteer opportunities are perfect for individuals of all levels of experience - from beginner to expert! Sign up here to be notified when volunteer registration opens on 11/1.

Schools

This year, we're doubling our number of school partners to work with ten amazing K-8 schools around Indianapolis. Our school partners reserve time for their students to complete the Hour of Code during CS Ed Week and host the volunteers who assist with facilitating the activity. We'll work with you to build a schedule that works for your building and provide all activity materials.You'll just need a computer lab, Chromebook cart, or some form of technology available for the students during the Hour of Code!
