BUILD. PLAY. WIN! Celebrate Computer Science Education Week and the holidays with Code Ninjas! Join our Holiday Hack-A-Thon, where kids will sharpen their coding, game building, and teamwork using Scratch AND can win awesome prizes both locally and nationally!
WHO CAN PLAY:The Holiday Hack-A-Thon is FREE and open to the public, so bring a friend to join in the fun with you. Kids must be ages 7-14 and have some experience with Scratch to participate.
HOW IT WORKS: In teams of two, kids will flex their coding and creative muscles while building a game in Scratch with a Holiday Theme, and then present it to the group. They can sign-up with a friend, or will be paired up at the event. Our Code Senseis will be the judges and score the games.
LOCAL & NATIONAL PRIZES: Our center's top team will win prizes including Kamagami Robot + $25 off any camp + Official Entry to the National contest for even bigger prizes! National prizes have been announced!
1st Place Prize: UBTECH Iron Man MK50 Robot, Apple iPad, Toybox 3D printer
2nd Place Prize: UBTECH Jimu Robot Kit: FireBot, Apple iPad
3 Place Prize: UBTECH Jimu Robot Kit: BuzzBot, Samsung Galaxy Tablet
SUGGESTED DONATION: We are collecting donations for the St. Augustine "House of Boys" to help boys 6-17 years old who are in transitional housing before entering foster homes to have or buy their very own toy. If you are able to bring a new unwrapped gift (toys, gift cards, etc), it will be greatly appreciated! We love seeing these kids smile for the holidays!
