Every December, as part of Computer Science Education Week, students from across the country take part in Hour of Code activities that give them an introduction to computational thinking and computer science. There are almost two-hundred tutorials for grades K-12 that focuses on various aspects of computing.  Once again, AccessCSforAll (formally AccessCS10K) offered the only tutorial accessible to students who are blind or low vision. 

The Quorum tutorial follows Mary as she learns how to program in Quorum to help with a research project at her school.  Check out the tutorial and share it with students and educators who may be able to utilize it. There is also additional curriculum available for teachers to teach Quorum in their classrooms.
