Today we had great fun at First8! With the ladies of JDuchess we organized Devoxx4Kids, a programming event to introduce software programming concepts to kids in a fun way.
In a few workshops we had a pack of 40 children create dazzling games in Scratch, make Jave modifications to the Minecraft source code in order to have creepers explode 30 times bigger than usual and make LEGO robots dance and walk the line.
Following photo’s give an impression of today.

You don’t want to know what this does to the LEGO robot :-)
Making some Minecraft code changes to the Creeper
A golden Zombie villager with a golden chicken, so I was told.
