Yesterday we had the first "code school" for kids at the Reaktor office in Helsinki.
There was about ten parents and even more kids of ages 4 to 10 and we mostly played around with Turtle Roy. I had a very brief intro on the projector and then the kids and the parents just started coding together.
All the kids seemed amazingly concentrated and excited about programming to my surprise. I was prepared for a 30 minute session or so, but they just kept on coding! Only after 1 and half hours the first ones started to leave.
Here are some of the works the kids saved:

Most of the kids and daddies took notes too. This was one of the cutest:
That was amazing! And what's more amazing, I got volunteer daddys to organize the next meeting. Good times!
