What does "Unplugged" mean?
Unplugged activities are lessons that teach computational thinking skills through exploration and play. These activities are highly collaborative and designed to be run easily, without much preparation or supplies.
In this activity, learners practice interpreting code by acting out printed Scratch algorithms in small groups, then work to debug (or fix) the code together as a class.
What You'll Need:
- Space to move around
- Camera turned on
For this workshop, an adult needs to be present in the room with the participant at all times.
None! This workshop is designed for beginners.
