Santa Tracker

This is a feature that I look forward from Google every year – the Santa Tracker from Santa’s Village.

The big kid in me enjoys the activities and the obvious design and planning that goes into them.

You can read all the details here.

Despite the fun appearance of the village, there’s a great deal of learning to be had by digging into the activities. They’re all accessible via the hamburg menu in the top left.

My fascination, at least for now, is Code Boogie as we head into Computer Science Education Week. Do a little drag and drop coding to follow the teacher or create dance steps of your own. It starts easily enough but then …

And, the cool thing is that you can actually view the Javascript code once the activity is over.

But that’s just one of the activities available. I’m sure that you’ll have your favourites after a while. The Gumball Tilt is a challenge for my fingers.

Follow the link to the Google blog post above and then head into the village. Or, for the impatient, just click here.
