• CS to Go

WEEK 7 CHALLENGE



The Week 7 challenge is:

Use computer science to create something in honor of National Scavenger Hunt 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! 


And check out Evan’s Scratch project for Teacher Appreciation Week on Flipgrid. We would love to share more of your projects, so be sure to post them. See this blog post to find out how to share.


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).


Beginner: Scratch


Take a look at the following video for some ideas on how to use Scratch with this week’s challenge: Use computer science to create something in honor of National Scavenger Hunt Day.

In this video, you’ll learn more about how to get started with:

  • Using backdrops

  • Turning sprites into hidden objects

  • Using these components to create a scavenger hunt game




Intermediate: App Inventor


Take a look at the following video for some ideas on how to use Python with this week’s challenge: Use computer science to create something in honor of National Scavenger Hunt Day.


In this video, you’ll learn more about how to get started with:

  • Creating a listview in App Inventor

  • Adding and removing items from a list




Unplugged


Take a look at the following video for some ideas on unplugged (no tech necessary) activities to try out to engage with this week’s challenge: Use computer science to create something in honor of National Scavenger Hunt Day.


In this video, you’ll learn more about how to get started with:

  • Understanding algorithms

  • Using algorithms to create a program

  • Applying these concepts to create a Scavenger Hunt



next week's challenge


Next week’s challenge will get us thinking about artifical intelligence in honor of Autonomous Vehicle Day! CS to Go with Code Savvy challenges will be shared via email, on the CS to Go Code Savvy website, and via social media on Monday evenings of each week. And be sure to subscribe to the Code Savvy YouTube Channel!






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 Python below!
