Friday the 20th of July, marked the anniversary of the 1969 moon landing. To celebrate this historic achievement many EDHS students took part in ‘MOONHACK 2018’ a world record attempt to have the most people coding on a space themed activity at one time.
Coding is an important skill for all kids to learn, and we want to be sure everyone can gain the skill, confidence and opportunity to shape their world. Let's go to the moon together! - Code club Australia.
After a big job to count and verify all the submissions that were made across the globe on the day, results have been released and A NEW WORLD RECORD has been set with 35,865 kids coding space themed projects!!!
What an amazing global achievement that Exmouth has contributed to!!!
To play the game below press SPACEBAR to burn fuel and slow down the lunar module. If you hit the moon surface too fast ( If speed > 2) you will crash. This is quite challenging to do. The kids showed their coding skills are improving when they worked out how to reprogram the code to make it easier or harder to complete the game!!!
