Last week, we welcomed Keegan-Michael Key and Vint Cerf on Code Break to discuss the Internet, protocols, and creating your own website. If you missed it, you can still watch the episode and try the activities.
In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week, we’re excited to welcome the founder and CEO of Khan Academy, Sal Khan, as well as computer science educator, Flo Vaughn. Together we’ll learn about conditionals, which is how computers use logic and IF statements to make decisions.
Please show support for a teacher in your life by tweeting your appreciation with #CodeBreak, or join our episode live this week to submit a comment that may end up being read on air!
