Code Hero

Just made a small donation and downloaded Code Hero from Primer Labs (thanks to Matt Seeney at Knowledge Nation for sharing the link).

The concept behind Code Hero is quite simply that young people can extend their capabilities and have a better understanding of their world if they learn how to actively create rather than passively consume. Computer coding can provide a very powerful way into this world but is often difficult to get into and involves a very steep learning curve (Logo springs to mind as a notable exception from my days as a teacher).

Alex Peake the founder of the Primer Labs, the company behind Code Hero, is certainly a young man on a mission to make a difference. If you have 17 minutes watch Alex as he takes us through a history of the worst decisions made by humanity, a whistle-stop tour of Code Hero and an introduction to the wonderful Gamesbridge Unityservity:
