Today's Google Doodle Celebrates 50 Years of Kids Coding

Google Doodle Celebrates 50 Years Of Kids Coding Languages The First Ever Coding Doodle Is A Lot Of Fun

If you are looking right now for a simple introduction to coding suitable look no further than the Google Home page.

The structure is inspired by Logo, the first coding language designed for kids in the 1960s by Seymour Papert and researchers at MIT. Logo allowed children to program and control the movements of a turtle and also provided them with the opportunity to explore ideas in maths and science.

This unique doodle is Google's first-ever coding doodle to celebrate the computer science education week (CSEdWeek) and also mark 50 years of kids coding languages. "In the interactive Doodle "Coding for Carrots" that you program and help the furry friends on 6 levels in search of carrots by binding blocks coding based on the Scratch programming language for children", - explained the developers. With Scratch, kids can create their own interactive stories, games, and animations, using coding blocks just like the ones in today's Doodle.

It was created in 1967 and was the inspiration for the code Scratch which today's Google Doodle is built from. Go here to check out some of the incredible range of things kids are creating with code.

It's an annual programme that's dedicated to inspiring school students to take an interest in Computer Science and Information Technology.

Google Doodle Coding Interface starts simply.

Logo is a basic programming language that teaches programming principles in a fun and easy way which makes it flawless for kids. They saw coding as a way for kids to develop confidence and fluency with a piece of powerful, modern, and one-day ubiquitous technology. It certainly does not appear as boring (it may have been exciting for those born in the 80's but not today) as Logo (which was perceived about 50 years ago) so it will be better at teaching kids how to code.

While there are in-person, free Hour of Code programs at Apple and Microsoft stores around the world, Google's on-your-desktop approach certainly has the widest reach. "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.
