Live virtual sessions held DAILY July 12-16 at 4 pm ET / 1 pm PT.
What You'll Do:
During this live coding session, Elby is desperate to win a kazoo from the prize wall at the mini-golf course, but this game is rigged! Kelsey and Matt the Robot will need to teach participants to reprogram the old, unfair code of the obstacles to make the games playable. CodeJoy participants will learn the basics of coding position and rotation motors using Makecode.
These sessions can support roughly 50 campers / computer logins. Please register each of your campers, one registration per device, so that we have a good count and do not overload the system. You can provide your campers’ email addresses to send them the session information directly or, for privacy, you can simply use your email address for all campers and distribute the participate live link yourself.
