During the winter break, families are looking for ways to keep kids engaged. For those looking to enhance coding skills, Microsoft Store is offering a new, free online workshop hosted by Store associates, Space Jam: A New Legacy in honor of the movie coming out in 2021.

In this workshop, students will have the opportunity to team up with LeBron James and Bugs Bunny to build a playable prototype of their game with block-based coding on the MakeCode Arcade Platform, while learning about the STEAM careers involved in game design.

This new workshop is part of a larger Microsoft partnership with Warner Bros. that includes a Space Jam: A New Legacy video game contest and coding curriculum all aimed at helping people acquire new digital skills.

Fans ages 14 and up can submit their games to enter a competition, available from Dec. 14-30, to create the next Space Jam: A New Legacy arcade-style game exclusively for Xbox Game Pass.

Additional Space Jam lesson plans and resources are available on Microsoft Store website
