    Code Break is attempting to “build the world’s largest live interactive classroom” with many guests from all different kinds of backgrounds whether it be coding, music, acting, and other creative occupations.

    “With schools closed and tens of millions of students at home, join Code.org each week for Code Break — help us build the world’s largest live interactive classroom, with weekly challenges to engage students of all abilities, even those without computers.”

    In addition to Forstall, the event is also featuring rapper Macklemore, who will most likely bring some kind of musical education to students attending the event.

    “Computer science is super fun because it is creative and playful. Whether it’s solving a puzzle, coding art, or designing an app, students prefer learning by exploring rather than memorizing. Students even rank CS their favorite subject after art, music, and dance. Computer science is foundational to all fields of study, but since many schools don’t offer it yet, this could be a unique chance to support your child in a fun new learning opportunity. Plus, recent studies show: children who study computer science perform better in other subjects, excel at problem-solving, and are 17% more likely to enroll in college.”
