Join Mizzentop Day School this December during the worldwide Hour of Code! On Saturday, December 10th, we’ll host a free one-hour introduction to computer science for children in 1st through 8th grade.
Maybe you’ll learn to program droids,and create your own Star Wars game in a galaxy far, far away, or use blocks of code to take an adventure through the world of Minecraft. Make animals, pirates, zombies, ninjas, and many more characters move, make sounds, and score points as you create your own story or design a new game to play with your friends. The possibilities are endless!
Spots are limited, so register for this free event before it’s too late! No need to bring your own device: you’ll be using our Chromebooks and Windows PC’s to get coding!
About the Hour of Code
Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. The good news is that we’re on our way to changing this. If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code, and even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign!
The 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, featuring 1-hour coding activities that nurture problem-solving skills, creativity, and resilience by teaching students how to think logically and by rewarding repeated effort over instant gratification.
