Times Table Hack Stars
17 Dec 2023
Time will tell if this was good parenting or not. Finn has been saying he’s interested in coding. We’ve enjoyed building games together (he loves setting up cheat codes in the little scripts). It seems to work best if I code and commentate: although he likes getting the machine to do his bidding, the details don’t seem so interesting to him.
Anyway, Finn has also been obsessed of late with an online times table challenge shared at school. We sat and looked at an (assumed) architecture diagram of a data-driven website, and had an chat about ethical hacking. We decided it was ok to fiddle the game to get high scores, but not to post them online in the (semi) competitive parts of the site.
Passed a fun couple of hours and got the Christmas holidays off to a good start!< Previous post | Next post >
