Everyone should learn programming! If you don’t believe me, listen to why kids to learn programming in this TEDx Talk by MIT Media Lab’s Mitch Resnick, founder and director of MIT’s Lifelong Kindergarten group. For more information on Mitch Resnick’s projects, click here.
Here are some cool sites for learning about programming, robotics and STEM:

FREE Programming and Maker sites:
- I highly recommend codecademy.com for learning web programming. With a parent’s permission, students can register for an account (e-mail address required) and work through tutorials. The site is free.
- code.org is a GREAT site for programmers of all ages and all skill levels!
- Another good site for learning many kinds of web programming is W3Schools.com. The site has lots of examples and an interactive interface where you type your code on one side of the screen and see the result on the other side. The site is free, no signup required, but there are a lot of ads on the site.
- Happy Nerds has a great list of programming languages that are EASILY learned by kids. We are currently using Scratch in the technology lab.
- SCRATCH, from MIT, uses building blocks to create computer programs. Lots of tutorials online.
- Alice, from Carnegie mellon Institute, teaches computer programming in a 3D environment. It uses a drag-and-drop interface similar to Scratch.
- CS2N, the Computer Science Student Network, has wonderful resources for learning all about computer science. Requires an e-mail address or Facebook account to sign up.
- Kids should be makers! DIY.org has awesome projects to make and badges to earn for kids. Requires parent’s permission and e-mail address.
- Another favorite site of mine is Sparkfun. They have lots of kits for sale, but also many fun projects.
- Lilypad sewable electronics is part of Sparkfun’s site.
- Arduino is a programmable circuit board that our 7th and 8th graders enjoyed at Think-A-Bit labs
