Unplugged: Coding Without Computers

Recommended for Kindergarten - 2nd Grade • New STEAM program*

Students will practice using the logical type of thinking employed by those who excel in STEAM subjects! Art, movement, and dance are the mediums by which students will explore binary code and the computer concept of looping, leaving the technology for later endeavors. Did you know “algorithm” is a fancy term for “instructions”? Take the challenge – learn to code!

Students will leave the program with a personalized Binary Bracelet, and teachers will leave with resources for enrichment in the classroom.
