This is an awesome freebie, whether you have a six year-old or a 16 year-old (and frankly, as a code dummy, I’m going to do this, too!).
This week is Computer Science Education Week — dedicated to teaching children and young adults what they won’t be taught in school: how to build code.
Find out more about all the free opportunities to learn to code online this week, including the fun & easy Angry Bird Tutorial for Beginners in Computer Coding.
Learn the basic concepts of Computer Science with drag and drop programming. This is a game-like, self-directed tutorial starring video lectures by Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies. Learn repeat-loops, conditionals, and basic algorithms. Available in 20 languages.
Will you be participating? Leave me a comment to let me know. And yes, we will be doing this in our homeschool this week.
