This week has been a whirlwind of JAVA coding, new friendships, creativity, and problem solving! I’ve been amazed at how fast they are picking up the content! Though random number generators, conditional statements, and loops may not be the most exciting thing to the everyday person, it is enough to keep these Code Heroes glued to their chairs!
“Alright, let’s take a break soon,” I said to the group. “You guys have been going strong for 2 1/2 hours!”
The student I was working 1-on-1 with replied, “I cant take a break! I’m too excited!” And he wasn’t the only one sharing that same sentiment. There is something about creating programs that gets kids excited. When they can see and understand the inner workings, the end result feels so much more satisfying.
This group has been so fun to work with, and I can’t wait to see what else they able to produce as the week goes on!
