Youth in Deschutes County will join more than 150,000 children across the country in the 12th annual 4-H National Youth Science Day challenge throughout the month of October. This year’s challenge, Game Changers, teaches young people coding skills through three engaging hands-on activities.
Deschutes County youth will hold a 4-H NYSD event featuring the Game Changers challenge on Monday, Oct. 28, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the OSU Extension Office, Building 3 at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds in Redmond.
Developed by Google and West Virginia University Extension Service, this hands-on experience includes a computer-based activity on Google’s CS First platform, as well as two unplugged activities that bring coding to life through games, physical activities and puzzles.
Game Changers is perfect for first-time and beginner coders, ages 8 to 14.
