Get'em while they're young!
Siv Midtun Hollup

Short workshop - in English
How can we bring computational thinking, problem solving and programming concepts to the masses? We'll look at ways to demonstrate programming concepts and create games for teaching kids ages 3 - 6 (or anyone, really) about programming and problem solving. We'll go through basic computational concepts and create games for those who can't even write yet. Bring your creativity and join the fun! Do you have a card game up your sleeve? A game that gets people running around? A way to demonstrate an algorithm or concept that makes people laugh? Can we use music?
You'll see how programming concepts are all around us, and you'll have to examine your knowledge of programming and computational thinking from a completely different viewpoint.
