Some of our NWOCA INS Staff attended a great workshop last week from Code.org.
I’m sure many of you have heard of Code.org, or used them for your own Hour of Code activities. But did you know that Code.org has a full Computer Science curriculum for students in grades K-12? This is all free for teachers, and the best part is that for a lot of it, you don’t even need devices!
The Code.org curriculum includes many Unplugged activities that use simple supplies to teach computer science concepts. From building a binary bracelet to learning through making paper airplanes, these lessons are engaging and fun for the students!
