  • Google Celebrates 50 Years of Kids Coding Languages With an Interactive Doodle

Today's Google Doodle celebrates 50 years of kids coding as part of Computer Science and Education Week.

Way back in the 1960s, researchers at MIT created Logo, an early programming language designed to teach children the basics of instruction-based coding. With Logo, children could program the movements of a turtle, giving them the opportunity to explore ideas in math and science.

There's also a companion Web site that lets students design their own Google Logo using a visual programming app called Scratch.

Logo is a basic programming language that teaches programming principles in a fun and easy way which makes it ideal for kids.

"Google's Programming for non-programmers" effort is part of Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 4-10), which is held in honor of and is created to get everyone, but especially students, to try just an hour of code.

Monday's Google Doodle puts a super-easy visual programming tool on the search page and gently guides even the most programming-averse among us with straightforward and kind of cute tutorials.

Today, computers are used in nearly every aspect of our lives.

Well, today's Google Doodle is a good reminder of how the past is not exactly the past and how we need to change the way we learn to prepare for the future.

The game titled Coding for Carrots, involves users placing together code sequences in order to help an animated rabbit navigate a block maze. To mark the occasion, they have created the first ever coding doodle - Coding for Carrots. "It makes me happy to think of all of the nine-year-olds who will get their first coding experience playing with today's Doodle", said Champika Fernando, Director of Communications, Scratch Team. "In some ways, it's very different from my first coding experience many years ago, but I hope it will be just as inspiring and influential for them".

Twine is the next level in teaching your kids how to code as this software is recommended for children aged 12 and up as this works as a non-linear storytelling app.
