It's Coding Week on Chompers, and Chomperbot is here to start things off with a quiz. 

Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Welcome back to Chompers, your morning and night tooth brushing show.

>> Chomperbot: Thanks Rachel, but I can take it from here. 

>> Rachel: Oh, thanks Chomperbot! 

>> Chomperbot: Start brushing on the top of your mouth, on one side, and make tiny circles around each tooth.

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!.

>> Rachel: Kurt! You did it! 

>> Kurt: Yeah I think it came out pretty okay. Oh and I hope you don’t mind. But I wanted to make this week about Coding and Computer Science. 

>> Chomperbot: It’s Coding Week on Chompers, and we’d like to start things off, with a quiz. 

(Quiz Theme)

>> Zac: Rachel! Our flight leaves in an hour, we’ve gotta go! 

>> Rachel: Ok, Kurt you think Chomperbot can handle this?

>> Chomperbot: But first, switch your brushing to the otherside of the top of your mouth, and keep on brushing. 

>> Kurt: Yeah, we’ve got a week’s worth of fun toothbrushing ready to go. 

>> Rachel: Alright well I’ll just check in every now and then. Thanks Kurt! Let’s go Zac!


>> Chomperbot: Alright Chompions. Your quiz question is: what do computer programmers write? 

Is it, books?


Or code? 

Before we answer this question, lets learn a bit about computers. But first,

Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth, and brush your front teeth too. 

Computers are tools that PEOPLE make. Just like KURT made me. Computers follow instructions that people write for them. We call those instructions CODE. That means anything a computer can do, like open a website, 


>> Chomperbot: -do math...


>> Chomperbot: -or even host your favorite podcast, 


>> Chomperbot: -it can do because of CODE.

Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and don’t forget the molars in the way back.

So, ready to answer our quiz? The answer is…. Computer programmers write CODE! [WOW!] Programmers can CODE computers to do all sorts of things, and we’re going to spend the week learning about the ways you come across coding everyday, maybe without even knowing it!

That’s all the time we have for Chompers today, but come back tomorrow for more Chompers, with me! Your Favorite Chomperbot. 

Until then,

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!!
