Alex, one of our young members, gave a presentation on Internet Security which may be seen here
Some things that came up in the Kahoot quiz:
The quiz was inspired by Google launching a throwback Google Doodle series on 27 April, which started by looking back at their 2017 Doodle game which celebrated 50 years of Kids Coding
(Previous Google Doodles can be seen at this link)
Men and women are equally good at competitive computer games
Scratch Month 2020 – A global celebration of Scratch! (I forgot to mention this, sorry!)
This year, the Scratch Team at MIT have transformed Scratch Day into Scratch Month! We invite you to imagine, create, and share along with us in the Scratch online community.
How to Participate: The Scratch Team will share a series of weekly themes throughout the month of May, designed to spark project ideas and learning through creative coding at home. Visit the “Featured Studios” section of the Scratch online community every Monday in May to find the weekly themes and create your own project. You can add your projects to the studios to share with the larger online community — as well as see what others around the world have created.
