Recently, several actions aimed at introducing informatics concepts to young students have been proposed. Among these, the “Hour of Code” initiative addresses a wide audience in several countries worldwide, with the goal of giving everyone the opportunity to learn computer science. This paper compares Hour of Code with an alternative, yet similar, approach which we believe is more effective in exposing pupils to the scientific value of the informatics discipline.
