Game of Code Week Starts Now!

By Robyn

The Bold Idea leadership team is passionate about a lot of things — improving computer science education for K-12, using technology to solve global challenges and empowering girls in their roles as builders of tech. It’s that passion that fueled our drive last year to create Bold Idea and what still keeps us motivated.

Yet in full disclosure, we’re also really, super passionate about something else. Something that we talk about ad nauseum and get super geeky over: Game of Thrones.

And so, in honor of the season 5 premiere of the epic show, we’re declaring it "Game of Code" week on the Bold Idea! blog (starting today). Several of us will share our review (and our kids’ reviews) of online games that teach coding fundamentals. Even though these were designed for younger students, we still had a blast playing them ourselves. Try them out today yourself and with your family. Let us know what you think!

To officially kick things off, here’s the ever relevant Sesame Street and its parody of Game Thrones. Enjoy!

The Game of Chairs will determine who will be king or queen of Jesteros. Four players will march around three chairs while music plays until one remains. Who will take the crown in this game of musical chairs? Robb, Cersie, Joffrey, Daeneyrus or....?
