WEEK 3 CHALLENGE



The Week 3 challenge is:

Use computer science to create something in honor of Poetry Month.

All of the challenges are purposely open ended -- use your creative genius to come up with an idea that matches with your interests and favorite things! 


The only limit we suggest is to ensure the content is appropriate for other kids; as we’re hoping you will be willing to share your projects publicly with the Code Savvy and greater #MNCodes community via our Flipgrid and/or by sharing a link on our Google Form (more info below on how to share).
