Star Wars Characters Will Now Teach Your Kids To Code

From the Wired post:

Computer science may be critical to careers of the future, but kids today don’t much care about it. For the most part, they still need convincing that coding is cool.

A new partnership between Code.org and Lucasfilm should help.

Yesterday, as part of its annual Hour of Code event, Code.org launched a free online tutorial that prompts kids to build their own games, based on characters in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Star Wars heroines Princess Leia and Rey, a character from the new film, will lead students through the lessons, where they’ll learn to write code to design their own games featuring characters like R2-D2 ad C-3PO.
