Join classrooms worldwide for a three-week event teaching computer science foundational skills to K-12 students. Register your class to receive information and participate in the activities delivered to your inbox during April. Week 1 introduces the challenge, and classes select their project using the options that address climate problems such as pollution, deforestation, etc. It is time for coding. During Week 2, students explore topics and work together to create a plan based on their target problem. Week 3 is all about collaboration. Meet with class partners in a global virtual exchange to discuss ideas. When complete, submit student projects and view other participants' solutions in May. Suggested tools for projects include Scratch reviewed here, Minecraft, Python, Lego Education reviewed here, Micro:bit, and HTML.

In the Classroom

Register your class and join classes from over 150 countries to participate in Coding for Climate activities. Engage and prepare your students to participate by creating Multimedia Text Sets for exploration that include climate awareness activities and information. Learn more about Multimedia Text Sets by viewing the archive of OK2Ask: Using Multimedia Text Sets for Student Knowledge Construction, reviewed here. Encourage students to learn more about coding by offering time to explore different coding platforms. Visit the TeachersFirst Edge coding category found here to find many different options for coding.
