Hour of Code Live – 2016

Thanks for attending our 2016 Hour of Code.

Code.Org seems to get more tutorials every year, offering a bigger and bigger selection. We’ve tried to pick a few that we thought would be fun for kids of different ages and skill levels.

When you go home, if you want to find this again, remember that you’ll find it in the “Tech We Teach” Section along with lots of other great recommendations of tutorials and projects we’ve made or found around the web.
