Apple to host a free education coding program for students 

Apple Monday, Apple said that it would be offering new resources to open thousands of free 'Hour of Code' sessions in its Apple Store facility across the globe that will help in bringing coding education to students.

According to the reports by Xinhua news agency, Apple went on to say that the customers could register for coding education through the Everyone Can Code programme at the Apple Store locations from 1st December to 14th December.

For the sixth year, Apple said it will host Hour of Code daily coding sessions through Today at Apple, which will provide opportunities for people at a variety of skill levels to learn coding.

Apple said that the Kids Hour sessions will aid in helping kids that are aged between six to twelve to explore coding with robots. The twelve-year-old kids can attend sessions using Swift Playgrounds and iPads too for learning the coding concepts.

The sessions are part of Apple's several programmes being unveiled to help more people learn coding skills both inside and outside the classroom.

Also on Monday, Apple encouraged teachers to attend its Computer Science Education Week, an educational campaign scheduled for early December to introduce computer science and coding to K-12 students.

Apple created a new Hour of Code Facilitator Guide to help teachers conduct in-classroom education by using Swift Playgrounds and other iPad apps.

For coding education outside of the classroom, Apple's new Swift Coding Club kit gives teachers, students and club mentors the tools they need to start their own coding clubs.

Moreso, there is a kit designed for kids aged 8 years old that will help build their ability to collaborate, prototype apps and learn how to code an app.
