Presentation Site
Have you ever wondered why Zombies walk the way they do? Well, somebody has to teach these walking dead to avoid hazards and walk with the dignity every Zombie desires. After all, their fashion sense and personal hygiene are beyond help.
Then there are the birds! They are angry. The birds are intent on pursuing those evil piggies. You can help. With a little work, you’ll teach those birds to avoid the TNT and get their birdie babies back home. All it takes is following and giving instructions. As teachers, you are already expert at that.
This class will introduce coding and the Hour Of Code. The Hour Of Code Website features brief statements from people like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and the inventors of Zynga and DropBox. Lesson plans, interactive coding games, and support materials are free, fun and educational. Coding teaches people to pause and think.
Take a break and challenge yourself to get those Zombies safely home! Certificates of Zombification will be awarded to all participants.
