Hour of Code
'Coding' or Computer programming is like giving your computer step by step instructions and telling it what to do. When you do this you can create a game, make an animation, a story and much more.
The people at CODE.ORG have organised a worldwide event known as the 'Hour of Code'. Last year over 100 million students worldwide tried coding in one week. This year, the focus is on getting more girls coding too. We has so much fun last year, we said we'd join in again. After all, in this technological world that is ever advancing, computer programming is becoming a life skill.
