Exactly Right Challenge

In this challenge, the audience works together to "program” the presenter to complete an activity, like making breakfast or riding a scooter. Can your instructions be exactly right and lead them to success?



Coding is something everyone can do! You can even learn the basics of coding without a computer. Introduce algorithms with this hands-on unplugged coding activity for kids.
