When asked for a clip of my large 3D print timelaspe to be included in a new video by Code.org, I had to oblige. Code.org is a non-profit foundation aimed at making computer programming interesting to young students, and committed to providing the opportunity for learning to code available at every school.
The short film (longer version here) breaks down the myths surrounding computer programming and shows that coding is an exciting, challenging and fun thing to do. The film also demonstrates that coders work at some of today’s most innovative companies and have a real impact on the world around them. The short features Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and other tech and media celebrities to motivate students (and their parents) to learn to code. The film is directed by Lesley Chilcott, producer for An Inconvenient Truth and Waiting for Superman. The film was launched this week with a large mainstream media publicity campaign, as well as being distributed to thousands of teachers to play in classrooms across the country. Video below; clip is around 2:17.
