We'll break our rowdy Newbies into two fun groups: Newbies A and Newbies AA. This way we don't bore our budding Hackers with introductory material. Then we'll finish the class all together with some learning games.
Yes, more bees! Last week we helped the bees find flowers, gather nectar, then make honey. We learned how to do it one step at a time - so that we could debug our solutions. Today, we go a step further with the introduction of Conditionals (decision points).

Now things are getting fun. Today we dive into event handlers - by creating controls for a Flappy game. This is where we can program a game to react to the player's input. Very cool. Have fun!

For the last 10 minutes or so of class we'll wrap-up with some fun learning games from Disney.

Let the fun begin!
