Learn to code with 3 co-taught lessons!
For Computer Science Education Week 2021, we teamed up with Minecraft: Education Edition to bring coding lessons to your classroom virtually. Each 90-minute co-taught lesson welcomed a different new guest speaker who shared their journey into the world of computer science.
We then open up Minecraft: Education Edition where we learned to code with either MakeCode (block-based programming) or Python (text-based programming).
To wrap up all of the code learning, we challenge you and your students to a Code Build Challenge – can your students create their own TimeCraft time warp that uses code to fix it?!
