Help Maya get to CityHacks!
CityHacks is finally here, the big coding club for people interested in making games and apps. The club meets on Thursdays and Fridays every week from 8pm to midnight. This is a fantastic opportunity for Maya and her big brother, the only snag is that their mom is concerned about the amount of sleep her kids would lose by joining the club. Help Maya convince her Mom to let her go to CityHacks by taking notes that support her argument. Present these notes to Maya’s mom at the end of the story to see if Maya gets to go to CityHacks.
