@olivia This makes me so mad. Having three daughters, I see more than ever how early the signalling begins. "Boy's" Clothes have computers, binary digits, circuit shapes. Girls get fucking Unicorns.
I've been teaching my 7-year-old a little Python and she loves it, and is clearly capable of understanding the abstractions. My 5-y-o plays Scratch Junior and loves it. Kids are kids.

@cathal @olivia (if you have methods/exercices to share, please don't hesitate)

@DarckCrystale @olivia Nothing so well formulated yet, no: Just that "Scratch Junior" is a really nice entry-point with more ready-to-go media and sprites for kids on Android. For my older girl I've started her out in Jupyter Notebook, just going through some concepts so far.
