Coding, Unplugged

Every year, Rivendell kids participate in the Hour of Code. This is a world-wide event to encourage students of all ages to learn computer programming.

But before we do coding with on-line activities, we do one “unplugged” in Older Kids. Using pencil and paper, they have to “program” their friends to stack cups in specific patterns. They learn about coding fundamentals like instruction sequencing, loops and conditionals without even being on a computer!
