Last month, Code.org, a non-profit website that offers online tutorials to teach computer programming, or “coding” to students, recently launched Star Wars themed coding tutorials.

One of the tutorials, geared to ages 6-10, allows students to create Star Wars games. They do so by dragging around blocks of actions, like “Move Up” or “Move Down”.

The tutorial geared to ages 11 on up also allows students to create Star Wars programs by dragging around blocks of code in the common programming language called Javascript.

Though given this is Star Wars…maybe they should call it “Jawa Script”! Or maybe “Jabba Script”, or “JarJar Script”.
