Memorial Day in the US today. Today we remember the men and women who have fallen in battle serving their county in the military. My Dad didn’t die in battle though he did serve in the Navy in WW II. He’s in my thoughts today as well. And we’ll probably grill today as well. Traditional Memorial Day food. For now I have some links to share with you.
Ruthe Farmer at NCWIT has been tweeting some links to interesting workshop lately.
- Coding camp from
@Tynker for ages 8-13 in Palo Alto California.
- Free computing workshop for middle and HS teachers July 10-12 in Colorado.
More than 500 students from 17 local schools came together in South Seattle to program their first apps at a major hackathon for students. Seems like a great event. They are planning more and larger events in Seattle. I wonder if this is something that will spread.
@wfryer Sent a link to a Linkly list of 14 apps & websites for programming on Simulation/Game Most of these I knew about but a few are new and I’ll still checking them out. Lots of these are good for younger students as well.
