Adding CS "unplugged" to your summer fun!

Posted By Linda Coyle, Thursday, June 8, 2017

Introducing Computer Science Unplugged

Have you thought about adding some Computer Science to summer fun, but were unsure how to do it?  Introduce your summer school kids, or your own children to CS Unplugged:

CS Unplugged is a collection of free learning activities that teach Computer Science through engaging games and puzzles that use cards, string, crayons and lots of running around. The activities introduce students to underlying concepts such as binary numbers, algorithms and data compression, separated from the distractions and technical details we usually see with computers. CS Unplugged is suitable for people of all ages, from elementary school to seniors, and from many countries and backgrounds. Unplugged has been used around the world for over twenty years, in classrooms, science centers, homes, and even for holiday events in a park!
