Title:       Angry Birds and Zombies: new ways to experience coding

 

Presentation Overview Description

 

For all the years that many have tried to raise the profile of computer science education,
now is the time to seize the day, more than any other.  There is widespread interest from
those who are not computer scientists: politicians, athletes, musicians, and actors are all
lending their support.   

 

This year, code.org has championed the international effort (over 150 countries are involved) called the Hour of Code: an attempt to get 10,000,000 students to experience programming for one hour.  We will talk about an event held in Regina on December 6 and what we can do to engage our local communities.
