Kojo Programming for Kids
About This Session
This hands-on lecture and lab introduces kids to programming fun graphical works and animations using the Kojo learning environment. For kids in grades 4–12 who can type at least ten words per minute. Kojo uses the Scala programming language. Bring your own laptop with Kojo already installed. Kids must be supervised by a parent/guardian at all times. Lalit Pant, the creator of Kojo, will say hello to us briefly from India by videoconference.
This video, from the Young Programmers Podcast, shows some of the interesting things we will do in this class: http://young-programmers.blogspot.com/2011/05/kojo-scala-random-polygon-drawing.html
