Hour of Code

On Monday the OC received a special visit from our favourite computer science guru, Dr Elena Prieto, from the University of Newcastle. Dr Elena joined us to take part in the Hour of Code, a global movement aimed at reaching tens of millions of students to introduce them to computer programming and encourage them to learn how to code. We had a great time completing a variety of online tutorials (there’s even a Frozen one!) and thank Dr Elena for sharing her time with us. So far, over 57, 530, 240 people have tried an Hour of Code, including President Barack Obama! Well done to the OC for taking part.


Happy 5000!
