CS Unplugged is a collection of free learning activities that teach Computer Science through engaging games and puzzles that use cards, string, crayons and lots of running around.
CS Unplugged is suitable for people of all ages, from elementary school to seniors, and from many countries and backgrounds. Unplugged has been used around the world for over fifteen years, in classrooms, science centers, homes, and even for holiday events in a park!
In addition to the Unplugged activities, we've collected lots of supplementary material on this site: videos, links, follow-up activities, photos, feedback, curiosities, information for teachers and more. Lots of this material comes from Unplugged volunteers and practitioners, and we'd love to hear about your experiences with Unplugged.
