Tablets are lifesavers for my family when we are on the road. We enforce the technology-free zone when we reach our destinations or are traveling through national parks, but sanity is often saved on long road trips and plane flights with a little help from technology.
Instead of just wasting endless hours on YouTube, why not encourage kids to learn to code while playing a fun video game designed to engage and educate? Lenovo recently announced its partnership with Girls Who Code – a national non-profit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology – to create a video which shines a light on the contributions that women have made in technology. The hope is that all children- male and female- will be inspired to consider a career in this increasingly important field.
According to Nick Winter, Co-founder, CEO and Motivation Guru of Code Combat, kids who become part of the Code & Play online community at LenovoGameState.com cover most of the programming concepts from the first two computer science courses that CS majors take at elite universities. They may be middle or high school students, but with game-based learning, they’re motivated to obtain even higher levels of knowledge. That’s exciting and inspiring stuff!
BUT WAIT-THERE’S MORE!
