Code Club Australia is calling all kids from Bunbury to help set a world record for the most number of children coding at the same time.
Thousands of children from across Australia will participate in the Moonhack by taking part in the computing coding exercises tonight – the anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
Bunbury kids are already joining the next generation of digital citizens through the Bunbury Catholic College Code Club, but any child whether they are part of a club or not can be part of the Moonhack.
Code Club Australia General Manager Kelly Tagalan said teaching children how to code would keep Australia at the forefront of international science and technology in the future.
Powered by Telstra Foundation, Code Club Australia was started in 2014 by Annie Parker, director and founder of muru-D, Telstra’s technology start-up accelerator.
Ms Parker said the Moonhack was an incredibly exciting opportunity for all kids in Bunbury to be world record holders.
“We will have a special moon-themed coding project on our website that kids can log-on from anywhere to become a world record holder,” she said.
Code Club Australia is aiming to have 10,000 kids around Australia take part in the Moonhack tonight.
