Celebrating Computer Science Education Week with Hour of Code

To celebrate Computer Science Education Week next week, people worldwide are hosting and participating in coding events as a part of Hour of Code. We’ve provided a list of activities so that you can join in on the fun too. The fun doesn’t have to be limited to one hour or just one session – do as much as you want, when you want.

Dec. 9th,  3pm – 5pm PT.  Join our free Kid Club server and learn how to work with redstone, logic gates and how to count and add with redstone! Make doors and other cool machines! 

Check out our list below for more ways to start learning to code.

    One problem with the HoC is there’s no help in how to progress. My 9yr old daughter’s pretty much conquered Scratch and I’m stuck scratching my head (if you excuse the pun) with where to go next. Moving away from visual block programming to text is quite a leap, so I’m a bit apprehensive about getting her on Python.
    It would be great to produce some sort of flow chart showing ideal routes for a kid to take when learning about computing with links to recommended tutorials etc.
