There’s nothing like CS Ed Week and a snow day to snap you out of a funk. I still have all those issues I mentioned in my last post, but they’re dissipating a bit, and I will have a chance to get back on track after winter break. So here’s what happened this week so far.
My students were the show for our assembly on Monday. My CS I students described their projects and what CS I was about. Then, I showed a video of the Rube Goldberg machine my Physical Computing students did. It faded into the Code.org video that talks about Computer Science and careers, etc. Here’s the Rube Goldberg video:
And here’s the code.org video, if you’re interested:
On Tuesday, I had planned a community event around learning to code, but we ended up with a snow day, so the event was cancelled and rescheduled for next week. Should be fun!
Wednesday, mostly a normal day, but I did let my 6th graders play with the tutorials on code.org.
Today, I ran a learn to code session for faculty. I helped them make an animated greeting card. I had about 10 or so faculty attend. I also had robotics this afternoon. When I left, there was one student still working. I have another whole post about robotics, but I’ll save it for later.
Tomorrow is mostly open. I have one class and I have to teach a robot to sing. We’ll see how that goes. So it’s all CS, all the time here. 🙂
