Kids have the power. Let's give them the tools!

Accenture is proud to partner with Code.org to support Hour of Code, aiming to empower every student to succeed in the digital world.

December 7–13, 2020

The sky’s the limit with computer science

Every student should have a chance to learn coding and computer science. Imagine the impact we can have if the hands kids use to navigate apps and play videos games are the ones designing them too! When young children have the opportunity to be more than just consumers of technology, they can create new technologies and solutions to change the world.

What is Hour of Code?

"By enabling young people to learn to code, we’re helping our next generation believe in the power of technology and wield it to improve the way the world works and lives."

— Paul Daugherty, Group Chief Executive – Technology, and Chief Technology Officer

Today’s thinkers, tinkerers and take it apart-ers

Preparing the next generation of workers—those who will be the leaders of tomorrow—for success in the digital economy requires building critical skills early and encouraging continuous learning throughout every stage of life. Through skills-building activities designed for today’s students, like Hour of Code, we aim to inspire belief in the power of technology and to foster the ability to wield it to improve the way the world works and lives.

"Coding pays back completely. When I saw young children who came barefoot to the classroom and started cracking Hour of Code courses with so much excitement, enthusiasm and collaboration, I saw so much talent to explore, and I just realized that I’m getting much more than I’m able to give them."

— Martin Macuha, Technology Consulting Manager, Accenture Consulting Hour of Code volunteer
