Following on from the successful tutorials featuring Anna and Elsa from Frozen, Hour of Code is now going to feature characters from Star Wars!
The new tutorial for the Hour of Code 2015, in partnership with Disney and Lucasfilm, features the eagerly awaited new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens.
Students will join forces with Rey to guide BB-8 through a space mission, then team up with Princess Leia to build their own game featuring R2-D2 or C-3PO. They’ll also be able to play their completed games on smartphones, and share them with friends and family through a unique link.
For beginner and younger students, a tablet-friendly drag-and-drop version will be available in the next few weeks. The tutorial will also be translated into more than 40 languages.
The preview activity is up on Code.org now, with more activities to come very soon.
