Today St Francis of Assisi is hoping to join kids around the world in setting a new World Record, by taking part in Moonhack.

What is Moonhack?

Moonhack is the World Record set by kids coding, and the idea came from the team at Code Club Australia. Last year 10,207 Australian kids participated in this free event. This year we're going global! From Sydney to Seoul, Dhaka to Durham, kids all over the world will get the chance to collaborate and code today, Tuesday August 15th.

Every student @stfrancischch will take part in one of the following projects:

They will then share their projects and be counted as part of the World Record attempt.

Haven't coded before? It's easy why not try one of the projects above?

Jaspar's Animation

Check out Jaspar's Midnight Wolf Animation. Jaspar is one of our youngest coders at Code Club but that certainly doesn't stop him from keeping up, in fact he has coded some of the most creative things we have seen in Code Club so far this year.

Nicolaas' Paranormal Hunter Game

Check out Nicolaas' finished Paranormal Ghost Hunter Game. Help the character in the game to kill all the ghosts in the graveyard, the more ghosts you kill the more points you get, but you need to be quick because you only have 20 seconds. If you're sure how to play click on the blue instructions link. Good luck, screenshot your score if you manage to get 15 or more ghosts.
