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. Sue Rose, Librarian at Chester Barrows Elementary School, created this Guide to help students use, enjoy and learn from what Code.org offers. Have fun!
