Youth Write Code for National Youth Science Day

Students from Alma, Gilmanton and Cochrane-Fountain City Schools wrote code for National Youth Science Day during the month of October. Young people used computer coding strategies to help Annie Lisowski, University of Wisconsin-Extension 4-H Youth Development Educator, perform the chicken dance. Students then used a software program called Scratch to animate a scene using code commands for sound, movement, color, size and more. Writing code engaged students in using critical thinking skills that are needed for the 21st century workforce.
