Google Doodle Celebrates 50 Years of Kids Coding

Could this be the most fun Google Doodle ever? Google
Google celebrated the 50th anniversary of Logo, the world's first programming language designed for kids, on Monday with a Doodle that celebrates kids coding languages and is aimed at teaching children to code. It has been created by the Google Doodle team in collaboration Google Blockly team and researchers from MIT - where Scratch originated and is still being developed. With Logo, children could program the movements of a turtle, giving them the opportunity to explore ideas in math and science. The idea is to help the rabbit gather its favourite food, "carrot", by snapping together coding blocks that are based on the Scratch programming language for kids. However, at that time, kids programming on computers sounded impractical. And, yes, Code.org created an Hour of Code program that helps coordinate many of these efforts.
Users can do it by using Scratch, a programming language, created by Lifelong Kindergarten Group at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and putting together coding blocks. Papert and his colleagues envisioned that computers could eventually be used by all children as a powerful tool for learning.
Today on the Google home page is a special interactive Google Doodle that helps kids learn how to code.
2017's one and only supermoon soars over Washington
The moon gained the title supermoon because it was not only full, but also passing Earth at about its closest point in its orbit. At 3.47pm - the exact moment of full moon - it was 222,761 miles from Earth, closer than the average distance of 238,900 miles.
Today, computers are used in nearly every aspect of our lives.
At Google's invitation, Fernando has written a detailed post on the history and importance of kids coding languages. Her first experience with coding was while she was a child in the 1980s, and she said her "working-class parents questioned how coding would ever benefit their nine-year-old daughter". She adds that she hopes people will find this experience appealing and engaging enough to be encouraged to pursue it further. "In some ways, it's very different from my first coding experience many years ago, but I hope it will be just as inspiring and influential for them", Fernando continued. It also includes a link to Teacher Resources in case you plan to teach code in the classroom.
