Today's Google Doodle created to teach kids how to code

Google celebrated the 50th anniversary of Logo, the world's first programming language designed for kids, on Monday with a Doodle that celebrates kids coding languages and is aimed at teaching children to code.

The doodle that was developed by three teams namely Google Doodle, Google Blockly and researchers from MIT Scratch, teaches children how to code with the help of a white rabbit.

"We believe all kids should have the opportunity to develop their confidence with the technology that surrounds us", said Champika Fernando, director of communications at Scratch. Today's celebrates 50 years of children's programming language with an interactive, six-leveled quest created to teach kids coding.

Alice this drag and drop interface is also suitable for kids ages 10 and upwards and is a flawless compromise between playing on the computer all day and doing something productive. In the game, a little bunny hops forward, makes a turn and collects all the carrots by snapping together coding blocks based on the Scratch programming language for kids.

Logo is a programming language of high level, which was created in 1967 by Seymour Papercom and Dt Harel for educational purposes to teach children of preschool and younger school age. Papert and his colleagues, had realised the potential of computer, way back then and had known that in some years it would evolve as an instrumental tool and would help children to learn new things. It's created to be less intimidating than typical programming languages, but just as powerful and expressive. Those early experiences not only influenced my career path, but provided me with new ways to express my ideas and influence the world around me.

You can also get programming software on your iPad for kids to play with, and Swift Playground offers all the fun of gaming while learning how to code in the process. They can also share their projects in an online community with millions of other kids around the world.
