Camp MAKESHOP: Computational Thinking

Before learning about computational thinking and computer programming, campers were asked to design something a little more low-tech: a board game! Many of the same ideas about rules, steps and instructions are the same between computer programming and board game design.

Once they played around with their physical creations, the kids sat down at computers to make something that is digitally interactive. Computational thinking doesn’t have to mean sitting in front of a screen, and programming doesn’t have to be lonely!
