Robot birds, comics and binary numbers: Gene Luen Yang teaches us computer science

from EdSurge (commentary)

Blake Montgomery, a contributor for EdSurge, writes: "When I talked to Gene Luen Yang, he was on a book tour for his latest novel, 'Secret Coders.' He had just finished giving a demonstration, which, he said, 'always gets gasps from the audience.' He had been using a computer program to draw squares on a screen then rotate them to create a star. Most novelists don't write code. Still fewer teach it. But Yang is a rarity: a nationally renowned writer with a techie past and an endless appetite for education. Decades ago, he learned Logo, a now-archaic programming language best known for its 'turtle graphics' that facilitate rudimentary drawing. On his monitor and in his comics, Logo lives on, delighting students with its starbursts and pulling them into a new world." more
