Take a Code Break
With schools closed and tens of millions of students at home, Code.org is launching Code Break — a live weekly webcast where our team will teach your children at home while school is closed, and a weekly challenge to engage students of all abilities, even those without computers.
Let us teach your children:
- A weekly webcast, featuring our founder Hadi Partovi and special guests
- A weekly activity or challenge
- Options for beginners, experienced students, and even students without computers
Stave off the dreaded “I’m bored” syndrome that hits partway into any vacation or downtime with a few of the BEST simple STEM activities that cost almost next to nothing.
We have a bunch of easy STEM challenges to get the juices flowing, keep the kids thinking, and best of all learning. As always we have plenty of science experiments and STEM activities to get through a whole year.
Anytime can be the right time to explore STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Explore our favorite experiments, engineering challenges and demonstrations with these fun hands-on STEM activities! Materials are easy to find, most activities take an hour or less, and the STEM learning is limitless.
Explore fun, social, and safe learning experiences—taught over live video chat. 10,000+ classes led by qualified teachers. Outschool offers live online classes for kids, conducted over video chat. We can help students continue learning at home by providing a safe, vetted, and fun classroom experience, led by highly qualified teachers.
On March 13, we launched outschool.org where we able to make $100K of classes available for free thanks to our generous donors to support public school families affected by closures in the wake of COVID-19.
YOURS FOR THE MAKING
Instructables is a community for people who like to make things. Come explore, share, and make your next project with us!
Instructables are created by you. No matter who you are, we all have secret skills to share. Come join our community of curious makers, innovators, teachers, and life long learners who love to share what they make.
We want to thank Gabriella, a member of a thriving coding club somewhere out there in the global STEAM community, for suggesting that we link to a coding glossary on our Resources page. What a great idea!
Thanks so much, Gabriella and Miss Martin!
Encouraging students to learn and use official computer science terms will enable them to communicate correctly and efficiently with others and prepare them for a sometimes confusing or intimidating entry into this wonderful world of coding.
