Computational Thinking

All Education


Youth are introduced to the concept of using algorithms through fun, hands-on activities using LEGOs and in Minecraft Education Edition

Game Changineer

Game Changineer is an AI-enabled website that allows students to practice coding their own games using standard language, so they learn the structure of code and computational thinking.

Computation Thinking with Monsters

With nothing but paper and markers, students will learn the four practices of computational thinking.

A Game Without Instructions

This lesson gives students the opportunity to practice the four computational thinking practices (decomposition, pattern matching, abstraction, and algorithms) in one cohesive activity.

Seeing Patterns

Learn how to help youth reflect and process experiences with patterns and trends in data to assist them in computational thinking.

Why Do We Do Computer Science?

Developing skills in computer science is important for any young person regardless of whether or not this is the career path. All young people will need to be able to use computational thinking to innovate and solve problems.

Break It Down

The facilitator works to enable active learning as youth work in small groups and use the strategies of computational thinking to design and describe their own unique monsters.
