Hour of Code has been a major success in getting students (and adults) interested in computer science. Last year, Hour of Code incorporated Anna and Elsa from ‘Frozen’ for some of the activities, and President Obama was just one of the 100 million students worldwide participating in the program created by the nonprofit organization Code.org.
And things have just gotten better for those interested in learning code. This year, Disney and Code.org are taking students to a galaxy far, far away.
That’s right. Characters from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ will help computer science Padawans learn the basics of code. Learn to code, you will.
Code.org founder Hadi Partovi stated, “Millions of us have been transported to a galaxy far, far away thanks to the creativity of the team behind ‘Star Wars’. Every one of us, especially young boys and girls, should also have the chance to learn how to power our own creativity with computer science.”
