Build your own yeti with code!

Happy Halloween! Made With Code by Google has a variety of fun games that can help students get into coding. In honor of today's spooky holiday, check out their Build Your Own Yeti Game, where you can choose the yeti's color and movements through the Blockly programming language. Click on the yeti below to get started:


Additionally, our Speak Up survey offers questions about coding and programming this year. A question that we ask high school students is:
If your school offered a class or after school activity to learn how to program or code, how interested would you be in taking that class or participating in that activity?

Don't forget to participate in Speak Up 2014!  Speak Up provides an easy way for students, parents and educators to participate in local decisions about technology, as well as contribute to the state and national dialogue about educational technology. Data from the surveys - including data regarding online classes - will be released in February 2015. Click here to register for Speak Up 2014, and be sure to take the survey before it closes on December 19th, 2014!
