In honor of Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 3 – Dec. 9), Code Ninjas of Morrisville/Cary will host a free Holiday Hack-A-Thon for kids to explore computer programming and win prizes, while also collecting unwrapped toys for NC Marines Toys for Tots.
On December 8th, students will pair up and go head-to-head in a friendly coding competition. Code Senseis (instructors) will choose the top three teams and recognize them with exciting prizes like Code Ninjas gift cards and robots. The top team will be voted on by Code Ninjas HQ for a chance to win coveted national prizes including a premium gaming laptop and a 3D printer for children. Code Ninjas Morrisville/Cary is one of 55 participating centers across the nation hosting Hack-A-Thon events.
Participants must be between 7-14 years old and should have some experience with Scratch (the kid-friendly coding program being used) to take part in the Hack-A-Thon. Contact Code Ninjas of Morrisville/Cary to register.
