Ubi de Feo, an Italian living in the Netherlands, wrote in to tell us about a series of workshops that he created entitled from 0 to C. The workshops teach students how computers work using everyday objects like M&M’s, ping-pong balls, cups, and wooden boxes. From 0 to C acts as an entrée into learning how to code in any language, but Ubi has plans to extend it to programming with an Arduino and other hardware. The pilot workshop was held in Amsterdam, and here’s hoping we’ll see it in other locations as well.
