Ask HN: Tech Curriculum for Children?

Hacker News - 25 min 48 sec ago

So about a year or so I ago I came across something called "A Plan of Graded Reading"[0] that is essentially a curriculum of things for young people (7th grade up through college). I like its format in that it has a mix of large and small selections, grouped by topics (e.g. Imaginative literature, Math/Science, etc.). My oldest (12) and I have been working through it to the tune of ~20-30 pages per week. Like any list its got some gaps and some things that are not worthwhile and and so I adjust as I see fit, but its really helpful to have a jumping off point.

My question for this group is if anyone is aware of something similar for tech. My strategy so far is to expose him to stuff (scratch, science kits, rpi, etc.) more or less at random and see what sticks. Its been good but I'd love to see an opinionated list on the things that young people should learn in regards to tech so that I can make it my own.
