Design with Algorithms in Tinkercad @codeorg #HourOfCode

From Tinkercad for Education on Instructables:

This has been written by Autodesk Tinkercad as a resource to support the ‘Hour of Code™’. The Hour of Code is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week [csedweek.org] and Code.org [code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming. The 2018 Computer Science Education Week will be December 3-9, but you can host an Hour of Code all year-round.

Recommended grades: 6-8

Skills taught:

  • Create a computer program that includes variables for control points and count-controlled loops
  • Fix a problem in an existing program in order to create something new
  • Describe choices made during program development using code comments
  • Compare tradeoffs associated with computing technologies that affect people’s everyday activities and career options
