Apple wants to “demystify code” by offering free programming classes for kids and teens.

Announced on Sunday, the 1-hour sessions will take place at Apple’s US retail stores on Wednesday. The free classes are designed as an introduction to computer science for the younger crowd, promising to teach them the basics of programming.

Kids can sign up for the tutorials by making a reservation at their nearest Apple retail store. The training is part of Apple’s contribution to Computer Science Education Week’s Hour of Code, a global initiative aimed at teaching code to people of all ages. The free, online sessions delve into such topics as writing your first computer program, getting an introduction to JavaScript, and building an iPhone game.
