Virginia 4-H has partnered with the Virginia State University Department of Computer Science (CS) to host “Code Your World at VSU!” for youth between age 8-14.

Code Your World is a four-part challenge that teaches kids to apply CS to the world around them through hands-on activities. Developed by Google and West Virginia University Extension Service, it includes a computer-based activity on Google’s CS First platform and three unplugged activities that bring coding to life through games and interaction.

Kids will participate in digital animation using Scratch, and dance to represent important CS skills, including computational thinking, decomposition, algorithm design, pattern recognition, and abstraction.
