Hour of Code™ made easy with Ozobot

tutorials special classroom kit

Are you taking part in the Hour of Code this year? Ozobot is here to help make this easy and fun for you and your students – no programming experience or knowledge of Ozobot required! We prepared everything you need, from tutorials to choose from to a special classroom kit for the Hour of Code.

What is the Hour of Code™?

The Hour of Code™ is a nationwide initiative by COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION WEEK and CODE.ORG to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming. One hour is enough to show your students that anyone can write computer code!

When and where is it taking place?

This year, the Hour of Code is December 5-11, but you can host it anytime and anywhere. It doesn’t have to be an hour either – you can have one session or several sessions. It’s up to you and your students’ needs.

How do I get started?

To make it easy for you, we have created 5 tutorials to choose from. All of them are for grades 1-12 and some even for kindergarteners! Some use markers and OzoCodes to program, others teach programming with the visual language OzoBlockly. But none of them require any prior knowledge of coding or Ozobot. Pick the one that fits your classroom the best!

Special Kit for the Hour of Code

To make gathering all the materials easier for you, we put together a special classroom kit for the Hour of Code. In it you will find all you need – from Ozobots and printouts of the tutorials to certificates for your students. And to give you an idea of how versatile learning with Ozobot is, we also include a construction kit with a printouts of challenges. The Kit for the Hour of Code contains:
