Do you want to help us set a new World Record? This year, YPRL will be joining young people worldwide in Moonhack 2017, to try to beat the record for the greatest number of kids coding on the same day.
The World Record was first set last year, when 10,207 Australian kids participated in this free event. This year, the team at Code Club Australia is taking Moonhack global! Kids all over the world, from Sydney to Seoul, Dhaka to Durham, will collaborate and code together on August 15th.
Moonhack and Code Club are all about encouraging young people to learn to code, because digital literacy is an important skill in the modern world.
Lalor Library and Thomastown Library are hosting special Moonhack sessions on Tuesday 15 August, 4.00pm – 5.30pm. Mill Park Library will be involved through their regular Code Club, Makers Club and Level Up programs. We will have special moon-themed projects in Scratch and Scratch Jr, and 8-18 year olds are welcome whether they are beginners or experienced coders.
