Use AI to create comics in our new course Use AI to create comics in our new course

It has been a busy start to the school year for us and we are excited to bring you some updates on what we have been working on.

Introducing the AI Comic Book Course πŸ€–

In celebration of this year's Hour of Code, we're excited to launch a new Python course that lets students explore the fascinating world of generative AI in comic book creation. This course delves into various aspects of AI, including diffusion models and data biases. It also offers students the opportunity to harness generative AI for creating visually appealing programs. We're eagerly awaiting the creative masterpieces our students will produce!

Turinglab Now in Germany πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ

Willkommen πŸ‘‹. Through our collaboration with Amazon, we've launched a German version of Turinglab. German speakers, you can now experience Turinglab in your native language by visiting

New Feature: Demo Mode πŸ“Ό

Today we are introducing a Demo Mode for teachers where you can revisit completed lessons with a fresh start. This feature allows you to retake multiple choice questions and reset code editors to their initial state, making it simpler to demonstrate model answers to students. This much-requested feature is now live!

Enhanced Farmbot Error Messages ⚠️

We've upgraded Farmbot to provide more informative error messages. Now, when students encounter issues, such as typographical errors in the plant command, they'll receive clear, helpful guidance.
