Edward S. Rhodes Library: Hour of Code

Welcome to the Edward S. Rhodes Library website!

Welcome to Hour of Code!

Code.org is an international organization with a goal of introducing as many students as possible to Computer Science. The Hour of Code offers on line tutorials to show students the basics of computer programming.  During Computer Science Week, Code.org wants to introduce millions of students to these concepts.  I have created this Guide to help students use, enjoy and learn from what Code.org offers.  I hope you all enjoy it!
