Location: MakerLab

Celebrate Hour of Code and Computer Science week by coding a Google Doodle. Google Doodles are special logos that appear on the Google homepage to celebrate holidays and important people, places, and events. At Google there’s an entire team of artists, engineers, and other Googlers from all over the world who help create and launch Google Doodles globally almost every day — and now you can join in the fun. Use your creativity and imagination to bring the Google logo to life using code. Make the letters dance, tell a story or create a game. With Scratch, anyone can become a designer and programmer! For grades 4-12.

Between Dec. 4-10, ten percent of students around the world will celebrate Computer Science Education Week by doing an Hour of Code event at their school. It’s an opportunity for every child to learn how the technology around us works. If you’ve heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history – more than 100 million students around the world have tried an Hour of Code.

Thanks to the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code, and even leaders like President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote their first lines of code as part of the campaign.
