Can picture books teach coding concepts? Absolutely! In this session, we will take a look at multiple picture books that provide a segue into coding. Participants will explore hands-on unplugged coding for beginners (students AND teachers). Sequencing, stacks and queues, conditionals and events are just a few coding concepts that can be introduced through picture books. After introducing young coders to basic coding concepts, extend their coding knowledge with CodeSpark Academy and The Foos!
