Today's Google Doodle Teaches Kids How to Code

Google has had some pretty incredible Google Doodle's in the past, but today's might be the most useful. At least, for kids (and adults) who are interested in learning how to code.

Today's Google Doodle is an interactive coding game, which is the first of its kind as a Doodle. The game consists of helping an adorable little rabbit collect carrots by using a basic drag-and-drop coding language. The language was designed specifically for kids by MIT's Scratch team, but it's a great way for people of all ages to learn the basics of coding for free.

The "Coding for Carrots" Doodle was created in honor of Computer Science Education Week, and it's also celebrating the 50th anniversary since coding for kids was introduced.
In an official statement, Champika Fernando, director of communications at Scratch, said, "We believe all kids should have the opportunity to develop their confidence with the technology that surrounds us. This week, millions of people around the world can and will have their first experience with coding. My hope is that people will find this first experience appealing and engaging, and they'll be encouraged to go further."
Check out today's Doodle simply by visiting Google. But just a warning—it's a highly addictive game, and you might end up going down the rabbit hole.
