teaching 4th graders computer science

One of the many inspirations I came away from GHC with is to volunteer in my youngest’s 4th grade class and expose the kids to compsci.   That’s a big factor in getting girls interested in it as a major and career.  Luckily,  the teacher is science-focused, and the curriculum is science-lacking, so this works out well.

Here’s the lesson plan I’ve put together, with great great help from the hour of code project.

 

I think in 90 minutes, I can deliver an introduction to computer science, coding, loops, if statements, and relate it all to how 3D printing works.
