CALLING ALL TEACHERS TO RUN AN HOUR OF CODE
The annual global ‘Hour of Code’ campaign and Computer Science Education Week is kicking off on the 5th December to 10th December and we want as many kids in New Zealand to get to take part as possible.
OMG Tech! is partnering with Microsoft New Zealand and other computer education groups to run the events, which are all about raising awareness of the ‘Hour of Code’ opportunity to teach coding to thousands of Kiwi students around the country, via online tutorials at Code.org.
Enter your school at code.org and get your kids coding!
Amongst the activities available at Code.org is a computer coding tutorial inspired by the popular online building game, Minecraft. Now available at https://code.org/minecraft the tutorial introduces players to basic coding within the fun and familiar environment of the Minecraft world.
