About Hour of Code

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history with more than 100 million students that have participated. Last school year, CodeCrew students taught players from the Memphis Grizzlies how to code!!

This event is hosted by our friends at Cloud901! Visit their website at www.memphislibrary.org/cloud901/
