Apple today for the fifth consecutive year has opened registration for free one-hour “Hour of Code” sessions between December 4 and December 10 at all of its nearly 500 retail stores around the world.

For the fifth year, Apple Stores will participate in Hour of Code with daily coding sessions in celebration of Computer Science Education Week. Young aspiring coders can learn coding basics during a Kids Hour session, while those age twelve and above can use Swift Playgrounds on iPad to learn coding concepts and even program robots. A new Teacher Tuesdays session helps educators learn how to teach code to students using new resources and discussion topics.

Apple also introduced a new Hour of Code challenge in Swift Playgrounds that invites students to build and customize a digital robot, and added new teacher resources to the Everyone Can Code curriculum to help teach Swift.
