Apple is supporting the Hour of Code project by offering lessons at its Apple Stores around the world.
The Hour of Code is a week-long event that runs in conjunction with Computer Science Education Week from Dec. 8-14. Go to http://code.org for more info.
Launched in 2013, Code.org is a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Their vision “is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science.”
