My students had the most fun with the programming cards. These are a great tool to help them visualize how coding works and they enjoyed making me (the facilitator) do silly dances... view morewith their algorithms! They also enjoyed the \"Animate a Name\" activity and most went far beyond dancing letters - we had football players doing fancy footwork (to music) and sharks chasing divers across the screen (with screams and all!). This kit worked really well and so far I\'ve been able to re-use it with multiple groups. Fyi, the coding cards can be written on with dry-erase markers which makes them easier to re-use (just don\'t press too hard or you\'ll work through the waxy coating). view less
A: Hello, Kiki, the computer based activity would need to allow each student to do it on their own. They walk through the project with something that is personal to them. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you.
