Fun and foundational

Computer science is super fun because it is creative and playful. Whether it’s solving a puzzle, coding art, or designing an app, students prefer learning by exploring rather than memorizing.

Computer science is foundational to all fields of study, but since many schools don’t offer it yet, this could be a unique chance to support your child in a fun new learning opportunity.

Sign up to receive each week's activities, general updates, and unique opportunities to interact with our special guests.

Tune in with students across the globe to join our founder Hadi Partovi, special guests, and Code.org's best teachers to learn different computer science concepts in a live interactive classroom. To get the classroom projects each week, sign up above and add Code Break to your calendar.
