• CS to Go

WEEK 9 CHALLENGE



The Week 9 challenge is:

Use computer science to create something in honor of Father's 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. We are planning to take most of the summer off, but will periodically connect with some new programming as we develop it.


We still would like 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: Scratch


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 in honor of Father's Day.


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

  • Animating Sprites

  • Making your Sprites talk




Intermediate: Python


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 Father's Day.


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

  • Using Python

  • Converting block code to Python line code




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:

  • Decomposition & Concept Maps

  • Using these concepts to create a Father's Day card



future challenges


As noted above, we are planning to take most of the summer off, but will periodically connect with some new programming as we develop it.


CS to Go with Code Savvy challenges are all accessible via previous emails, on the CS to Go Code Savvy website, and on the Code Savvy YouTube Channel.
