Preparing for the 2019 4-H NYSD Challenge

Computer Science (CS) can be a game-changer for young people when they learn to be creators, not just consumers of technology. The 2019 National Youth Science Day (NYSD) challenge, Game Changers. Designed by Google and West Virginia Extension service, Game Changers uses physical activity and puzzles to teach kids important CS concepts. This free resource that engages young people ages 8-14 is perfect for afterschool programs. Youth will use CS to create games, solve problems and engage with topics they’re passionate about. This webinar will help staff develop confidence in leading active, engaging CS experiences that challenge and inspire young people.
