Coding Tutorial Uses Popular Children’s Film to Attract Kids

Code.org and Disney Interactive have created a new basic coding tutorial for children featuring characters from the animated film Frozen to stimulate their interest in computer science. The Artist with Anna and Elsa tutorial offers viewers information on programming concepts like loops and conditionals. The module also is embedded with short video lectures from women working in technology. Code.org is a nonprofit organization focused on expanding participation in computer science, particularly by children, women, and people of color. The tutorial project is part of the organization’s Hour of Code campaign, a one-hour introduction to computer science for tens of millions of students in 180 countries. Disney is hosting Hour of Code events at several of its offices. (Geek Wire)(The Seattle Times)(Code.Org “Artist with Anna and Elsa”)
