On 4th of this month we the Jnaapti team planned a small workshop to get 9th and 10th standard kids to get them started with programming . We visited Florence Public School and it was really a pleasant experience to see such fresh minds exercising their mind.
I was really amazed to watch them approach the problems we gave them, we have a rigid mind and we are really bad at thinking out of the box and that is because we have been taught rather conditioned to go in one direction.
But these kids they never knew this problem so they have a very different approach to these problem and I learnt about 7 new ways to approach the famous N-Queens problem.
Then came my favorite part “LABY” its a game which teaches programming in a fun way, so the whole idea is to make an ant to reach the door. There are various obstacles that needs to be handled and you know what you are going to use for that ? CODE what else but its super fun to do that and we could see that in those kids. I learnt a lot that day like how will you explain conditionals , I am telling you it is not as easy as it looks.
