Grand Circus Detroit and the Michigan Science Center are excited to be partnered to host this year’s Hour of Code, a global movement aimed to increase tech accessibility and education.
We will be hosting one-hour coding sessions using an array of self-paced exercises designed to engage young audiences. This event is designed for youth (ages 6yrs+) and their parents. Hour of Code features tools that simplify coding experiences, allowing youth to make their own apps and games.
