Code.org, an organization that tries to get girls excited about coding, unveiled this month a new tutorial that uses a couple of Disney’s wildly popular princesses from the movie Frozen.
Disney has given its blessing, and $100,000, for the creation of a 1-hour tutorial that shows kids how to use computer code to get Anna and Elsa to ice skate around their computer screens.
Using an innovative webpage, the kids can use computer code menus to carve snowflakes and patterns in the ice and create their own winter wonderland.
Since 2012, Code.org courses have been used in 62,000 classrooms.
