Mozilla Joins Hour of Code

Mozilla

For the second year in a row, Mozilla is a partner in the Hour of Code, and we hope you’ll join us.

This  campaign launched in 2013, to align with Computer Science Education Week, and to demystify code and show that anyone can learn the basics. While we’re surrounded by technology and the web in our daily lives, few people understand how it all works. In our mission to protect the open web as a global resource for all, we must educate others about how and why the web exists, but also how the web is a creative platform with endless possibilities and opportunities now and for our future.

Last  year, 15 million students  participated in the Hour of Code. It was  supported by education and technology leaders like Amazon.com, Yahoo! and Boys & Girls Club of America, as well as celebrities and teachers from school districts across the globe.
