Take the kids and check out the Hour of Code!

" Explore computer science and coding with hands-on computer science activities led by staff from Pacific Science Center. For ages 10 and up.

Activities will include:

Hardware: Chip’s Challenge
Ever wondered how computers keep getting faster and better? The answer is in the design of their microchips. Become a hardware engineer and learn about transistors, Moore's Law, and how it’s possible to fit all that computing power on one tiny little chip! It's a puzzle solving challenge sure to get your imagination working. 

Software Development: A-mazing Robots
Help a robot get through a maze! Become a computer programmer and use a paper prototype to write code to navigate your robot through the maze. Using the software development cycle, edit your code to get the robot through more complex mazes and additional challenges!

Binary Bracelets
Learn the basics of binary code, which computers use to communicate numbers, letters, commands, images and sounds. Create a personalized beaded bracelet with your initials expressed in binary code. "
