Here are resources I have on our Destiny page; I will add more good ones as I come across them. Please note: to go directly to the sites included, click on the name of the site by the number.

Learn to code

Learn to code interactively, for free. This includes many more complex tasks and languages, including website design. (Animating your name is one of many, many activities)

Code.org - Code with Anna and Elsa: Artist #1

Everybody gets in the act! I understand that some of the coding activities using "Frozen" get a bit complex.

The Hour of Code is coming: this is a good place to start.

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Check out the tutorials. Anybody can host an Hour of Code anytime, but the grassroots campaign goal is for tens of millions of students to try an Hour of Code during December 8-14, 2014, in celebration of Computer Science Education Week.

Things you love are Made with Code. Code your first creative project and meet music producers, fashion designers, humanitarians, and animators who are coding the world they want to see.
This mentions coding for girls, but boys have really enjoyed the Christmas tree and the snowflake as well.

Symbaloo #1 (some of these are more elementary)
