Welcome to Hour of Code 2015!

Tens of millions of students of all ages and backgrounds have tried an Hour of Code, a one-hour introduction designed to demystify computer science and show that anybody can learn the basics.

For Liberty Hill's second annual Hour of Code, we have selected a handful of grade-level tutorials to pick from. Take a quick look through the descriptions...select the one you like...and then start your Hour of Code! We hope that this will give you a small taste of what coding is like, and we hope you come back for more!
