Celebrate Hour of Code and Computer Science week by completing the Minecraft Hour of Code group challenge! We will be working in two teams to race through Minecraft with code. This is a fun and engaging introduction to coding logic and concepts. For grades K-1.

 

 

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.
