Apart from remixing the teeshirt and logo, painting and stuffs, I started with the youngest one, Progga who instructed and took help of me to make such a cute thing with Thimble. As Christmas is near, she made something which is related to Christmas, a wishing card!

She was amazed to see lots of Christmas related stuffs on the net

Hour Of Code!!

The very first day when I was reading about HOUR OF CODE in Malaysia,when I was on holiday(September 2nd week),I thought of doing hour of code..

Teach some fellow friends or cousins about computer science for one hour.

As of today CSE week starts for a week(Dec. 9-15) I called my cousins at my place to teach them computer science!

We started at like 8.20 pm and ended at 9.30pm.

In the mean time ,

I started with code.org where they have tutorials for kids to learn coding:

ImageImage

My lil cousin felt shy for pics πŸ˜›

ImageThen they were shown in the introductory video

Image

The firts code of them!I explained what do do and how to do!They answered perfectly! πŸ™‚

Image

She was explaining me which steps should the ANGRY Bird take then!

Image

Image

Image

I am explaining her the steps ..

We both did an awesome job(Team Work)!

ImageNow it was Thimble time!

We hacked a Holiday card and made it ours as Hour Of Code.

ImageBoth working hard I see, no knowledge at all about HTML/CSS/Javascript.

I made them understand the easy steps.

Image

Nuzha and Sadmila(class 7) working as a team!

ImageImageImage

At last weΒ  hacked this and the result was this !! πŸ™‚

Image

My cousin was not willing to go home , she loved coding and stuffs I taught her.Another cousin told me that she will visit again my place to learn more.

BTW, meet her-> Zahara Khan Nuzha ,currently studying at Junior Lab High school,class 2

Β She seemed very happy!

ImageImage

I hope this super small hour of code was successful in a mini way πŸ™‚

I have more plans to attend Hour Of Code!

Thanks everyone for giving your 5 Minutes! πŸ™‚
