Cue the computers...and robots too! Celebrate Computer Science Education Week, observed each year in recognition of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906 – January 1, 1992). Museum of Science, Boston is marking the occasion with a roster of fun and educational hands-on activities for visitors of all ages during the celebration’s culmination — Computer Science Education Weekend!
Computer Science Education Weekend will feature a "passport" of activities for visitors to try around the building while collecting stamps to return for a prize. Activities include:
Put your creativity to the test by designing, building, and testing circuits out of familiar and unconventional materials!
Try some activities and talk to local inventors, computer scientists, and roboticists as they share their stories and projects.
Use your computational thinking skills to program your way through a fruit maze, or to play a classic game of tic-tac-toe.
Program robots to follow your instructions to complete challenges.
