The Hour of Code is a global initiative reaching tens of millions of people in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. http://www.hourofcode.com/nz
Why not run one at your workplace between the 7th to the 13th December, or encourage your children’s school to run one!
There are 8 tutorials with teaching notes and it looks pretty straight forward. https://code.org/learn. Remember to register your event, if you do run one, and post on social media/websites etc.to encourage even more participation next year.
