With schools closed, my daughters are interested in (or at least willing to try learning a programming language. I had initially thought of Racket after seeing Matthias Felleisen’s video but I believe Julia is probably a better choice for them.
My objectives are:
- to give them a taste of programming as a superpower (for school assignments but not just that)
- give them a better grasp of functions (which was a central point in Felleisen’s argument)
Now I am aware of the treasure trove of material at https://julialang.org/learning/ but most seems to be geared towards college students. Can anyone recommend tutorials, books, videos, etc. (English or French) that would be more suitable for high school students? They are 15 and 17.
Also, does any one here have experience teaching their kids Julia? Any tips you can share?
