ALGORITHMS & PROGRAMS
Algorithms Kodable fuzzFamily Frenzy These are mostly just sequencing but they could be extended into other Programming & Algorithm topics below. For example:

1) Complete the algorithm only when an event happens

2) The algorithm created should contain a loop

3) Add some conditions. If you are programming a human robot, add a condition that they should walk forward until they encounter an obstacle and then turn right, for example

Intel: The Journey Inside – Fetch, Decode, and Execute Use the Fetch, Decode, and Execute handout to organize students in groups and have them perform the three steps a microprocessor uses to process an instruction. This activity requires making index cards in advance with a variety of hand-written commands such as “fold this card in half and give it to a person with glasses.”
