Today is time for a quick summer post, these days I’m kind of busy with some Artificial Intelligence learning activities, and I don’t have the time I want to write.
There’s a very interesting Microsoft program for kids named Summer Of MakeCode (see references). During this program, new activities are presented each week to perform with the family, and it’s all based in MakeCode.
I’ve talked about MakeCode dusing my sessions [Artificial Intelligence with Minecraft] MakeCode is an excellent graphic platform to learn how to program. In fact, learning how to program using this interconnected block scheme helps you learn to think in sequential mode, it is also useful to understand basic programming concepts such as IF statements, loops and more.
When I was checking the materials on the MakeCode home page, I got an amazing surprise: there is a section in Beta phase dedicated to the programming of a Lego Mindstoms EV3.
The tutorials are quite entertaining and while, during the day everything is football and games in the park, I will see if my little ones want to dust the Lego and play a while with it. There are a few days left to return to school, so you have to take advantage of this opportunity!
