Another fun-filled mentoring session for Canada Learning Code at HackerYou in Toronto! A shout out to Melaine & @Nahal for coming out to support with me & bringing their enthusiasm to the workshop. Thanks to TAL Group for supporting such a fantastic volunteer initiative as part of its #PayITForward campaign! The mind reels at how quickly these young 5-7 year olds are grasping such complicated tech.
Using a station-to-station approach, our young teams engaged directly with VR tech, learned the building-blocks of basic coding structures (aka ‘how robots think’) and later used Scratch Foundation to design a video game with sprites, commands & sounds. If their minds are grasping all this before High School, just consider what they’ll be empowered to do by University and then later into their adult lives.
