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 4th December to 10th December and we want as many kids in New Zealand to get to take part as possible.  

OMGTech! is once again 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.
