• CS to Go

WEEK 8 CHALLENGE

Updated: Jun 23



The Week 8 challenge is:

Use computer science to create something AI-Inspired in honor of Autonomous Vehicle Day.

We hope you are enjoying our weekly CS to Go online series of video challenges that focus on creating new things with computer science. It is now time for you to give us some feedback on how we are doing with this distance learning program and to see if your children would be interested in additional opportunities to code online with our CoderDojo mentors. Please complete this survey, so we know what you would like to see until we can get back to our in person events.


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 (more info below on how to share).


Beginner: EdScratch


Take a look at the following video for some ideas on how to use EdScratch with this week’s challenge: Use computer science to create something AI-Inspired in honor of Autonomous Vehicle Day.


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

  • Edison Robots

  • Using EdScratch to program an Edison Robot




Intermediate: Thunkable


Take a look at the following video for some ideas on how to use Thunkable with this week’s challenge: Use computer science to create something AI-Inspired in honor of Autonomous Vehicle Day.


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

  • Hidden components in Thunkable

  • Using hidden components to create an image-recognizer app




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 AI-Inspired in honor of Autonomous Vehicle Day.


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

  • Algorithms, flowcharts, & collaboration

  • Applying these concepts to the construction of a model car



next week's challenge


Next week’s challenge will get us thinking about friendship in honor of National Best Friends 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.
