Geared towards grades 4-8
This set of interactive activities is designed to get kids excited about computer science (CS) through hands-on learning. Through puzzles, games, challenges, and creativity, youth will be introduced to the concept of CS, learn what computer scientists do, and even take on the role of a computer scientist. These activities are designed to make it easy to facilitate for those with no coding experience and advanced coders, alike. Each activity includes background and preparation details for the facilitator, discussion points, prompting questions, and reflection questions to relate the world of CS to the lives of youth.
Note: This set of activities requires all participants to have a laptop, tablet, or other device capable of running Scratch. Additionally, we recommend that all participants have a Scratch (https://scratch.mit.edu) account created to save their work. In addition to materials provided, youth participants should have access to drawing and coloring tools (pencils, colored pencils, markers, etc) and scissors.
