CS News – Old People Like Scratch

Kids Teaching Scratch to Old Folks

This is a great article about the HILR program at Harvard.  Teenagers are teaching retirees how to write programs and create amazing stuff using Scratch.  I think this is awesome.  My sons, 6 and 9, both use Scratch and have attempted to teach every one of their friends how to “Crank Code in Scratch”.  It is very cool to see kids sharing their love for Comp Sci!
