    The 'Hour of Code™' is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week and to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming. Autodesk is proud to support students making with code by offering four Autodesk Tinkercad Codeblocks lesson plans. Tinkercad’s computational design workspace, Codeblocks, is the simplest place to make 3D models using draggable blocks of code.
