What Makes Computer Science Unique?

The 4-H experiential learning model helps young people understand that computer science is much more than just what happens on a computer. This approach develops leadership and life skills and prepares young people to be the innovators and problem-solvers of our future.


Video-Based Learning Module

As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:

  • How does the 4-H experiential model work with computer science?
  • What is the ultimate goal of 4-H experiences?
  • How to unplugged activities help youth learn about computer science?

Now that you've watched the video, reflect on what you saw and post your responses.

  • How have you used the experiential model (do, reflect, apply) in your own learning – maybe without realizing it?
  • What can you do to support youth in your community?
