Newbie Resources

3 Mar 2017 • eugene

Newbies are a big challenge for us mentors. They're almost ready for navigating the OS, firing-up code editors, and working with the command line. To get them ready, we carefully select activities from a variety of resources that build the skills they need. More, we try to keep it fun and switch between them during class to keep the kids engaged.


When the kids start racing through these activities and get bored, they're ready to advance and join the Hackers!
