WEEK 5 CHALLENGE



The Week 5 challenge is:

Use computer science to create something that reminds you of Spring in honor of Mother's Day

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).

getting started with CS to Go challenges


To make getting started with CS to Go challenges a bit easier, we will be releasing a series of Getting Started videos. These videos will provide a brief introduction to the different coding languages we use in our weekly challenges. In these videos, we'll get viewers better acquainted with the layout and functions of these online platforms. This will make following along with our Beginner and Intermediate challenges a bit simpler. Videos will be released weekly with each of our challenges. See our second video on Thunkable below!
