Hour of Code is a global movement to get people involved in coding (https://hourofcode.com/us). Play. Tinker. Make. at the Science Museum decided to turn Hour of Code into a full day of coding! Different code-related activities were out on the museum floor, such as Scratch, Code.org, LEGO Doodle, Ozobots, and Turtle Art. Guest presenters Christopher Danielson (Math-On-A-Stick) and Open World Learning LEGO League also brought in activities for our visitors!
