This October, 4‑H and Google will launch an exciting National Youth Science Day challenge, Code Your World, which invites kids to get involved in computer science through hands-on doing. NYSD will be held on October 3 and local activities can be held then or any other date.
Code Your World is a four-part computer science (CS) challenge that teaches kids to apply CS to the world around them through hands-on activities. Developed by Google and West Virginia University Extension Service, it includes a computer-based activity on Google’s CS First platform and three unplugged activities that bring coding to life through games and interaction.
Code Your World uses games and hands-on fun to teach kids important CS and computational thinking concepts, and is perfect for first-time and beginner coders ages 8-14.
