Kids Coding Events Breaks World Record for Number of Kids Writing Code in One Day

Friday, August 18, 2017

On Tuesday, August 15th, kids in twenty different countries broke the record by joining in the Moonhack event. Moonhack is an Australian record setting hackathon that wants to get kids interested in coding. Kids had one day to write code for something in one of Moonhack’s coding platforms. The only rule was that their animations, games, or websites feature a moon somewhere in their design. Kids also had the option to complete a Moonhack project using one of three programs: Scratch Jr, Scratch, or Python. This year, kids doubled the Moonhack record from 2016, bringing it from 10,207 to 28,575 participants. 

Quickstart: we have resources for Students, Parents, Teachers, and Guidance Counselors
