Friday’s outreach was a success, but we had an excess of volunteers. We had six kids to teach and about eleven volunteers, so there were many cases were two to three volunteers had nothing to do. Luckily we were able to utilise the extra volunteers to list out recurring bugs in the new math slayer program. In the future we will try to limit volunteers based on how many kids Pastor Kim say will be coming.
This Friday was also the first outreach where we tested the Star Wars Hour of Code. Overall the kids responded well to the program. It is very similar to scratch but it is more interactive and visually appealing. Some of the kids were reluctant to try the program at first since it was “Star Wars” themed but eventually it caught their attention. We will try more hour of code activities in the future if possible.
