Hidden Figures Black History Month Unplugged Coding Activity

3.00

Integrate coding in your classroom with an Unplugged Hidden Figures Coding STEM Activity!

Hidden Figures Coding Challenge is a fun and unique way to engage your students during Black History Month and Women's History Month. Teach students that anyone can be a scientist regardless of race or gender.

Students begin the activity by reading about the Hidden Figures. We included our own reading passage, and you can also use Hidden Figures: The True Story of Four Black Women and the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly.

Students work together to create different codes to direct the astronauts to the moon. Every activity and solution is unique as students create their own board and code by moving the start point, obstacles, and end points on their coding sheets.

After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.

This activity is completely unplugged, and no robots are required.
