Join us in celebrating CSEdWeek

December 3-9 is Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek)—an annual event to get students excited about CS by trying an Hour of Code, no experience needed. Google is a proud partner as part of our ongoing commitment to broaden CS opportunities for millions of students all year long.

Code an Unusual Discovery

Create an interactive story using block based coding with CS First's latest coding activity. Two characters meet and discover a surprising object. What happens next? It's up to you! View teacher resources.

What students are coding

Gif showing two cute illustrated characters. One looks like a monkey and the other looks like they are in a space suit. They talk about a spaceship and if they can start it up. Someone pops their head in the spaceship and it takes off.

My project is about two people that find a spaceship. They decide to take it on a test run, but someone else beats them to it first.

Gif of two illustrated characters. One's an elf. The other is a skeleton. They stand in front of a cave and they interact with a magic book that's lying on the floor. The book flies away.

Maximilian, 9

This story is about a skeleton and a goblin who come upon a magic book.

Gif of two illustrated characters. One's a milk carton. The other is an egg. They are talking to shoes with wings. All of them are on a basketball court. The shoes kick a soccer ball to the net.

Sarah, 12

My project combines lots of things I love, like sports and breakfast food.
