The Hour of Code is coming up in the next few weeks. A few years ago they released an Angry Birds version and then an Elsa skating challenge. Those were pretty neat. This year they released a Star Wars challenge, I guess that is kinda cool.
I saw this today and I am wicked excited! Minecraft challenge!
Go check it out. I would think every student young and old would be pumped about this one.
