Hour of Code Challenge

If you're looking for something a little different to do in school the next few weeks, consider learning to code! Each year, millions of students from around the globe participate in a week long challenge to see if they each can accumulate an hour of coding. It's easy, once you learn. Last year a number of YouLearn students participated. Many I'm sure will this year, too.

The official challenge runs from Dec. 7-14. However, you can sign up and start learning to code at any time by visiting code.org. Coding is an excellent way to sharpen your problem solving and math skills as well as increase creative and logical thinking. Did I mention it's super creative and fun?

Let your teacher know if you join this year's challenge and/or start coding this year. And definitely, share with us any of the programs you create!
