Learn About Your Heroes

12 Jan

Everyday new heroes are born and former heroes die. It seems like more famous people died in 2016 than ever before. What is your source to discover figures from the past? Traditionally I have just Googled it or looked up an individual on Wikipedia. However recently, I stumbled upon the Biography website and discovered a different experience. The site features pictures, videos and in-depth articles on human legends from all walks of life.

I’m a huge fan of biographies. I read the biography of Benjamin Franklin front to back numerous times. The fact is that every life has a story.

What’s The Impact of An Hour of Coding?

28 Apr

Have you thought about getting your kids into computer programming at an early age? Code.org suggests that just an hour of coding can change the direction of student and push them into a career of technology. The site says, “The Hour of Code is at its core not about learning a brand new skill in just one hour. One hour isn’t enough to learn how to code. It’s about increasing access to computer science by breaking stereotypes and opening doors. Somebody may learn programming concepts like loops, conditionals, or basic debugging through the Hour of Code. But a much more important goal is for students and teachers to learn that computer science is fun — you can start at any age, in any classroom, even if you don’t have a computer.”

Discover how to get your child into computer science.
