CodeWeek - Explaining how to Code to 12 yr old kids

24,064 views

Published on

All around Europe, kids are learning to code understand how technology that we use everyday works. Coding provides an alternative approach to solving problems, exploring ideas and having fun.

As part of CodeWeek, I presented at the International School of Amsterdam. The kids were about 12 years old.

I talked about my experience making websites and how by knowing a little bit of code, how it's possible to have fun with any website.

A website can be built. And it can also be destroyed! ...well not really. But the kids really liked that word.

My personal findings: The kids are into Maroon 5, Will.I.Am and Lil Wayne. Boys and girls both love the word hacking. And everyone is texting at 12...I couldn't believe it!

CodeWeek is an initiative was launched by Neelie Kroes' Young Advisors with the support from DG Connect at the European Commission. Sounds fancier than it really is. We're just a bunch of young people with a dream of a world where all sort of crazy ideas are given a chance to change the world. But it's not really about us. (Source: http://codeweek.eu/about/)

  4. Hi guys!
  5. It’s like playing with Legos! I build websites
  6. but… what’s the opposite of building?
  7. destroy websites!
  8. destroy websites! and I can do that too
