In CS First’s new activity for Hour of Code 2018, “An Unusual Discovery”, two characters meet in a virtual world and discover a surprising object. Students get to decide what happens next by creating a story with code. Using basic CS concepts such as events, sequencing and conditionals, students can use their imaginations and creativity to bring the interaction to life. As with other CS First projects, this stand-alone activity is part of the free, video-based, introductory computer science curriculum designed to engage diverse students in grades 4-8 (ages 9-14).
