Keeping with the tradition of commemorating important dates and people, the doodle team over at Google today (December 4) is celebrating 50 years since children programming languages were introduced.

The game is based on the Scratch programming language for kids, and the Doodle was developed by three teams including the Google Doodle team, Google Blockly, and MIT Scratch. With Logo, children could program the movements of a turtle, giving them the opportunity to explore ideas in math and science.

"Google's Programming for non-programmers" effort is part of Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 4-10), which is held in honor of and is created to get everyone, but especially students, to try just an hour of code.

The first coding language for kids, Logo, was developed and designed by Seymour Papert and researchers at MIT in the 1960s, long before personal computers were introduced.

By moving the turtle around the screen, users are able to draw different shapes.

Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science. It's created to be less intimidating than typical programming languages, but just as powerful and expressive. We have them in our homes, at work, and in our pockets.

In order to move their character around or make them take actions they must piece together a series of instructions which will teach them about the basics of coding through a user friendly and fun interface. Those early experiences not only influenced my career path, but provided me with new ways to express my ideas and influence the world around me.

Monday's Google Doodle puts a super-easy visual programming tool on the search page and gently guides even the most programming-averse among us with straightforward and kind of cute tutorials. With this doodle, she hopes that millions of people around the world can and will have their first experience with coding.

It was created in 1967 and was the inspiration for the code Scratch which today's Google Doodle is built from.
