Code with Google & Chance the Rapper celebrate student creativity
December 9th - 15th is Computer Science Education Week - an annual event for partners and educators to come together and encourage millions of students to try computer science.
This year, we’re celebrating student coders in Chicago Public Schools alongside Chance the Rapper and his nonprofit, SocialWorks.
Students in Chicago Public Schools have been working on a video game using Scratch, a creative coding platform for kids. The game was recently named by Chance the Rapper as the "official video game" for the song, I Love You So Much.
With support from SocialWorks, CS4ALL in Chicago, and Google.org
Recently named the “official video game” for the song, I Love You So Much, SuperMe’s hand drawn heroes hail from Chicago Public Schools - where students across seven elementary and middle schools used code to make the heroes fly through their city - collecting hearts along the way.
Teachers: Your students can code a hero game too
Enjoyed SuperMe? Introduce your students to Code your Hero, a one hour coding activity from CS First, Code with Google's free coding curriculum for the classroom.
Go even further with more coding projects
If coding a superhero game was fun, educators can help students explore even more computer science activities.
