National 4-H Youth Science Day: CODE YOUR WORLD

Submitted by Amy Sollock

Code Your Wold

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. 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.

Discounted pre-sale for the 2018 National Youth Science Day kits is happening now and extends until late summer.  Visit www.shop4h.com/nysd to purchase your discounted kits and www.4-H.org/NYSD to learn more about this year’s NYSD challenge.
