Code.org announced Wednesday that it had teamed up with Disney Interactive on a tutorial that lets young programmers help Frozen sisters Anna and Elsa make ice fractals and skating patterns using basic coding skills.
The tutorial, at www.code.org/frozen, becomes part of the non-profit Code.org’s online learning platform, which is used in more than 50,000 classrooms. The Frozen tutorial will also kick off the ‘Hour of Code’ campaign, an initiative designed to widen participation in computer science worldwide, especially among girls.
The initiative has brought in a few spokeswoman to walk kids through video tutorials. These include Microsoft engineer Paola Mejia. They also include two models, including one who can boast both modeling and writing software applications as career achievements.
Disney is also donating $100,000 to Code.org to bring computer science education to after-school programs.
Here is the official website to try out the coding program.
