The Google Santa Tracker is up! Continue #HourOfCode in Santa’s Village!
Explore, play and learn with Santa’s elves all December long. Everyday until December 25 you can participate in code mini challenges, advent calendar style. Each day the calendar unlocks a new coding challenge that could be basic coding, creating cool artwork or customizing your own Elf.
Check out the Learn Code Lab where you fit code blocks together to complete puzzles just like online MakeCode projects!
Coding has never been so cool. 😎
