New case study: Teaching JS to elementary schoolers

As part of our teaching guide, we have case studies that show the various ways that teachers use our curriculum across the world. I recently found out about an elementary school teaching JavaScript to their students, and was surprised because most folks think that elementary schoolers are too young to learn a syntactic language like JavaScript. However, they found their students took to it quite well -- "begging to do extra homework".

You can read all about the class in the case study, including how they bring in guest speakers over Google hangouts and how they showcase their great project work to parents. Thank you to Omar Alvarez for sharing it!
