Registration now open to break a coding world record
This year’s Moonhack will be even bigger than before, with an estimated 50 000 kids completing challenges and running projects to explore space on 20 July.
As Nicola Curnow, national programme manager at Code Club Australia reveals, “We’re setting a world record, inviting every kid in the world to give coding a go, or impress us with their skills. […] Last year we had 28 575 kids from more than 50 countries participating; we’re aiming for 50 000 kids this year.”
You can register for Moonhack at moonhack.com to get your school, library, Code Club, CoderDojo, or your family involved, but the nature of the projects is still “top secret stuff!” says Nicola. However, she tells us “The whole Moonhack campaign is designed to be super-accessible, so there is no hardware required to participate.”
Moonhack projects are all space-themed, as the event celebrates the Apollo 11 moon landing. Stay informed via #moonhack.
