Introduction to Coding

In today’s class, we had guest speaker Rich McCue come in and introduce us to coding! I really found it interesting how he gave us links to come coding websites that are great for grades anywhere from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Here is a link to Rich McCue’s website. 

The list of programs that Rich introduced us to are:

  • scratch
  • grasshopper
  • hour of code
  • designing with algorithms using TinkerCad
  • Code BC

I found it really interesting how Scratch (the program that I used) allows students who do not know how to write or spell are able to use the program which makes it good for younger ages particularly. Not only younger ages but also of all ages. I had a really fun time operating Scratch and playing around to recreate the shape of a bear. (please see below)
