The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 40 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104.

The mission of the Beall Center is to support research and exhibitions that explore new relationships between the arts, sciences, and engineering, and thus, promote new forms of creation and expression using digital technologies.  We aspires to redefine the museum/gallery experience, both in content and form, formulating answers to the questions of how technology can be used effectively, not only to create new forms of art, but also to connect artist to artist, and artist with audience.

Anyone Can Learn


Hour of Code



Donald Beall became Chairman of the Board of Rockwell Corporation in 1988.  Don is an influential business leader, and he and his wife Joan have been advocates, leaders and supporters of the arts in Southern California for many years. Upon his retirement, the Rockwell Corporation was in search of an opportunity to honor the Bealls' contributions to Rockwell and to Southern California. The School of the Arts at the University of California, Irvine proposed the funding of a new facility, the Donald R. and Joan F. Beall Center for Art and Technology, an endeavor which addressed three principal aspects of his career and their enjoyment of life: business, engineering, and the arts.

The Beall Center received its initial support from the Rockwell Corporation in honor of retired chairman Don Beall and his wife, Joan. Today's major support is generously provided by the Beall Family Foundation.
