This unique doodle is Google's first-ever coding doodle to celebrate the computer science education week (CSEdWeek) and also mark 50 years of kids coding languages.

The doodle that was developed by three teams namely Google Doodle, Google Blockly and researchers from MIT Scratch, teaches children how to code with the help of a white rabbit.

The post continues to include words from Champika Fernando, Scratch Team's director of communications, who explores the evolution of children's programming languages from the '80s through to present day.

The area has been cordoned off and search operation is underway to track down the terrorists. The convoy was on the way to Srinagar from Qazigund, around 66 km away from Srinagar .

By moving the turtle around the screen, users are able to draw different shapes. It features a rabbit and after clicking on the play button, the interactive doodle encourages users to create code blocks and help the furry animal cross six levels to reach and reach its favourite food - a carrot.

Logo is a programming language of high level, which was created in 1967 by Seymour Papercom and Dt Harel for educational purposes to teach children of preschool and younger school age. Papert and his colleagues envisioned that computers could eventually be used by all children as a powerful tool for learning. In fact, even in the 1980's when I wrote my first lines of code, my working-class parents questioned how coding would ever benefit their nine-year-old daughter. New it allowed us to give visibility to teaching programming.

Fernando hopes that today's Google Doodle (which is appearing in most countries today) might ignite an interest in coding for kids around the world. We believe all kids should have the opportunity to develop their confidence with the technology that surrounds us.

He had been dealing with a sore Achilles all season long, but was able to start every game. First-rounder Marlon Humphrey should take over for Smith in the starting lineup.

She added in saying that, "This week, millions of people around the world can and will have their first experience with coding".

There's also a companion Web site that lets students design their own Google Logo using a visual programming app called Scratch. My hope is that people will find this first experience appealing and engaging, and they'll be encouraged to go further.
