One of the Groktalks at DDD5 was given by a young team from a local university and was all about their project to make the introduction of programming to youngsters more interesting. According to Hamish, their project is aimed at the 7- 11 age group. I’ll defer to his knowledge on the subject, as all I can remember from the guys was “key stage” this and “key stage” that – WTF is a “key stage”?
They asked for any comments and tips and I’m pleased to give this one…
DO NOT PICK YOUR NOSE, EVEN IF SOMEONE ELSE IS PRESENTING
Good luck to the guys for the international leg of the competition, which I believe is the Imagine Cup (again, info from Hamish’s blog).
