CEL CS Unplugged Challenge for kids is a weekly challenge for kids in grade 6-9 to master CS concepts to build 21st century skills.
Children need 21st century skills to thrive in the innovative world today.
In a survey, only 30% of the children have access to smart phones at home from marginalized communities. It’s a great opportunity to build 21st century skills using smartphones.
Computer Science concepts are principles based on which your computer works. It is one of the amazing ways to build critical thinking, creativity and other 21st century skills in children. CS concepts are fun and exciting!
We will be offering weekly challenges to children in grade 6-9 about the CS concepts in an unplugged manner.
These challenges will help children to appreciate CS concepts without needing computer i.e. The unplugged way. They would spend 1+ hour per week using the phone to watch a learning video and engage in fun relevant activities. Activities like how would a computer determine shortest routs as in Google apps.
Parents sign-up their children for the challenge. The registered participants would receive a weekly challenge through email. The challenge would consist of a video introducing a CS concept in fun way followed by a task on it. The children will watch the video to learn the concept, finish the challenge, click a picture of their task and submit the picture through Google Forms.
Lucky winners with correct response to the challenge will get their work recognized on website and social media and also win prizes.
