Chester W. Barrows School Library: Hour of Code 2016

Welcome to Hour of Code 2016! 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, wants to introduce millions of students to these concepts.  I have created this Guide to help students use, enjoy and learn from what offers.  I hope you all enjoy it!
