SF preschoolers learn to code for Computer Science Education Week

A Pre-Kindergarten class at Bessie Carmichael Elementary School in San Francisco’s South of Market District got a lesson in computer programming Thursday, December 8, 2016 as part of Computer Science Education Week within the San Francisco Unified School District. Students were given a lesson on sequences and programs by Google engineer Carrie Grimes Bostock before programming their own robot to perform two-step directions by scanning blocks with different commands, essentially programming the robots themselves.
