Abstract

Education for young children have to be consist of necessary ability for future society. Computational thinking will be a fundamental skill for everyone in the mid-21st century. The purpose of this research is to study the possibility of computational thinking for education of preschoolers. For that, we applicated of existing curriculum and taught the children with this. The result was that the lessons learned could help in algorithmic thinking and heuristic reasoning of children. Young children also were observed that they have a great interest in participating in the lessons.
