Welcome to Class 5-A
2019 Computer Science Summit for All
Incorporating Break Out Boxes with Computer Science
2019 Computer Science Teachers Association Conference
Constructing a paper computer. What you don’t see are all the paper “parts” hidden under the keyboard, but this was a really informative activity!
The Great Toilet Paper Challenge
Using just the information on a roll of toilet paper, would you be able to correctly estimate the total AREA and PERIMETER of the entire roll if you were to lay it out on the floor with no overlapping? Twenty-five tickets to the closest group. Good luck!
Shadow Shifting Exploration
Making the BEST phone call home to your parents. When will it be your turn?

Students constructing a mosaic of 225 Rubik’s Cubes
A bit more of a challenge, assembling over 2100 Rubik’s cubes for the Oliver Stone NYC movie premier of Snowden. This display took over 40 hours to complete using a computer scanning program that identified each 3 x 3 cube. Edward Snowden used the cube to smuggle his SD card containing confidential data through security checkpoints.
We’ve used Rubik’s Cubes in math class to learn about mathematical concepts, spatial relationships, and logical problem solving skills. On average, we’ve had 85% of students solve the cube in under 5 minutes. The record in class is 34 seconds!
