We are facing an incredibly challenging time with the global outbreak of COVID-19, grappling with growing concerns over health, our communities, and the economy. Safety measures have brought widespread school closures across the country.
We want to support teachers, students, and families in any way we can. Below is a set of resources to help your student learn computer science at home. Parents – if you're considering creating a Code.org account for your student or helping them access an existing account, please read this primer.
We also put together some resources to help teachers continue teaching computer science when their students are remote or in socially-distanced classrooms.
Try a one-hour tutorial designed for all ages. There are hundreds of activities and tutorials in over 45 languages.

A great option for students getting started on their own. You'll learn the fundamentals of computer science with drag & drop blocks. Create your own drawings and games. Note: Express courses are currently only available in English, Hindi, Italian, and Spanish. For other languages, we recommend our 20-hour Accelerated Course. To see what's available in your language, visit our course catalog.
Adapted from our CS Discoveries and CS Principles courses, these short, self-paced modules for middle and high school students are a great way to learn concepts that span all programming languages and tools.
Program animations, interactive art, and games in Game Lab. Start off with simple shapes and build up to more sophisticated sprite-based animations and games, using the same programming concepts and the design process computer scientists use daily. In the final project, you’ll develop a personalized, interactive program.
For middle and high school students.
Ages 13+, all modern browsers, English only
