By now, you’re sure to have seen the myriad of resources available on the internet to those who want to learn to code. We list 17 different resources here, and there are many more. If you’re not sure why you should learn to code, or if you think coding just ‘isn’t your thing’, the tl:dr of the story is that you need to learn how to code, or the job market is going to leave you behind.
You’ll have as many opportunities as you’ll need to achieve the goals of your game. In the case of the first lesson, you’ll have a droid collect pieces of metal while avoiding adversaries. Each advancing puzzle will have you combine more lines of code.
As a bonus, you’ll even hear some typically Star Wars sound effects (like R2-D2!) and snippets of the John Williams Soundtrack. When you’ve completed all the puzzles, you’ve completed your hour of code! Hopefully something you’ve learned will stick with you – or better yet, you’ll be enticed to take another lesson.
Code.org offers tons of different resources especially for teachers and classrooms. Check them out here, and don’t forget to hang out with the Star Wars gang this month to learn some code!
