Share this post:  
Code.org is one of our favourite coding resources we have covered over the past few years. We are revisiting it today to introduce it to those who haven't seen it yet and highlight some of its main features. Code.org is a non-profit dedicated to enhancing computer science education in schools. It provides "the leading curriculum for K-12 computer science in the largest school districts in the United States and Code.org also organizes the annual Hour of Code campaign which has engaged 15% of all students in the world." One of the main goals of Code.org is to increase diversity in computer science and make it more accessible to female students and underrepresented minorities.


Code.org offers a wide variety of coding courses designed for grades K-12 and beyond. Some of these materials are even available without having to sign in. The courses and activities will help students: learn how to make their own game, app or computer drawing; how to build real working apps, games and websites using HTML, CSSS, JavaScript, blocks and more. Code.org also offers online university courses to help students master various programming skills. There is also the popular Hour of Code that provides one-hour tutorials available in over 45 languages and designed to attend to the different coding needs of students.
