Comic: From Scratch

This is Pi Day #070 – March 16

The kid has been dabbling in code.

But where my friends and I hacked through lines of BASIC in our teens, her and her friends have Scratch a nifty visual coding interface for creating and sharing little games. I’ve played with it a bit and it really does offer up a clever way of sneakily teaching some coding fundamentals … the patience and imagination on the other hand? I guess that’s still my job.
