Description

How do we get kids excited about programming? Make programming tangible with embedded devices. Did you know that after kids learned to code with the BBC micro:bit, 90% of kids "thought coding was for everyone" and 86% said it made CS topics more interesting?





One person doing great work in this space is Nina Zakharenko. She's here to tell us all about her projects with CircuitPython.
