The youth of today…

… know how to code, it would appear! Logo

So I’ve been helping out at my local Code Club in the library. Once a fortnight the usually peaceful setting becomes a little bit more noisy for an hour after school. The kids get to make a different project each week using Scratch, which teaches them new coding techniques (this week we all got a bit lost with Forever and If loops).

The kids seem to really enjoy it (lots of “Wows” when things start working) and are learning something new, so all good there. Hopefully it will help them in the future to understand a bit more about how computers work.

Looking back, a long time ago I wrote an entire Dungeons and Dragons game in BBC BASIC and look where that ended me up!
