Young Programmers

These first grade programmers, from Mrs. Upshaw's class, had a great time working with the first concept of coding. That first step is sequence and it is one of the basic flow control structures in programming code. These first grade students had to speak the order of events BeeBot would execute to arrive at the exact answer to a math problem. They found out, by trial and error, that BeeBot would do exactly what they programmed him to do. As programmers, they also discovered that it is important to make sure the commands given are in the right sequence, otherwise the program might not run as expected. They will continue to practice their coding skills until BeeBot arrives at the correct answer every time.
