“Hour of code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts.”
In partnership with Hour of Code, Kids Code Jeunesse will offer free Hour of Code workshops featuring a Minecraft lesson plan from Code.org for kids 8 to 12 years old. Explore the world of Minecraft and exercise your critical thinking, problem-solving and creativity!
