If you happen to be near an Apple Store with your kid next Thursday, December 10, why not stop by to get your kid a free one-hour introduction to computer programming? Registration is open now.
The hands-on lesson will be based on Code.org tutorials, so technically you could just keep your kids home and do one of the Hour of Code lessons with your child yourself. But there's something about being at a table full of other kids working on their own projects that makes learning even more meaningful for kids.
Depending on the store you select, time slots are available during the day and in the evening for kids ages six and up. If your child has already been exposed to coding, this probably isn't for them. But otherwise it could be a great intro to coding for young kids (while you shop the Apple Store, perhaps, or participate in your own hour of code).
