WATCH KIDS CODE THEIR STORY WITH CARTOON NETWORK

It’s one thing to have a unique story to tell. But jumping into the world of your favorite Cartoon Network characters, and having your own story told through animation is a whole different level of awesome. And thanks to Cartoon Network and the NBA, a group of local New Orleans kids had the opportunity to express their creativity through coding (and maybe become the next wave of CN animators!) during NBA All-Star Weekend.

Get a taste of the experience by checking out this video of the Big Class/826 National Code Your Story 3-day mini camp. Kids got the chance to not only write a story, but power their ideas with the help of simple coding skills, their favorite Cartoon Network characters and a little basketball flair, with some celebrity star power thrown in for encouragement.
