Code.org has a new campaign called 'Hour of Code" and they have enlisted some of the tech world's most well-known figures to help students understand computer programming.
According to CNET, the goal of the "Hour of Code" is to introduce computer programming to K-12 students in the United States during Computer Science Education Week, which takes place from December 9 to the 15th.
Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, as well as Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter, are joining the cause.
According to The Register, as of now it is not known how much input Gates and Zuckerberg will have.
According to ZDNet, Code.org is around a year old, and the company's mantra is that computer science should be offered as a core curriculum at schools across the nation.
The company also wants to fill the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) gap in the job market.
