Just got back from a #HackSTB meetup where we talked about Khan Academy, CoderDojo and a few other projects that get kids to start coding.
I’m wondering which other apps, resources and projects are good. Obviously this changes quickly with age, but I figured I’d share the things I’ve found. Please suggest a few you have found.
- Scratch and Scratch 2.0.
- Adventure Games, like Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Money Island etc. Not so much for coding, but solving puzzles and getting comfortable with computers.
- Lego Mindstorms, EV3 looks rad.
- Khan Academy
A few people in the #HackSTB community are interested in starting something like a Coderdojo, so if this is something you are passionate about, come to the next meeting.
ps. I found this list.
