Today at Crayons we have discovered that the last friday in July is System Administrator Appreciation Day! Whilst we missed the actual day this year we were inspired, and somewhat curious, to search out children's computer stories. We found an interesting site by a highly qualified electrical engineer who uses the nom de plume Dr Techniko to help children learn about science and basic programming.
Dr Techniko has produced some novel and highly creative "Robot Programming" classes as well as stories and whilst the tales are not in the realms of Literature per se, this is a fun way of approaching storytelling that helps young minds explore modern ideas with imagination and creativity. Our favourite is the Dragon's Treasure Makeover.
Dragons of course come in all shapes and sizes and for very young Dragon fans we have the fun and beautifully boxed Glottogon Dragons & Knights ABC Flash Cards.
Sadly our Literature in July month at Crayons is drawing to a close and on Friday we begin Engineering in August!
P.s. Happy System Administrator's Day to all the patient and helpful System Admin gurus out there :-)
