Google CS First: Social media

CS First is a free program that offers computer science projects for students aged 9-14 who sign up to be part of the club. In the social media project, students move through eight activities that focus on an aspect of social media and develop computer science skills. Activities include animating a character, creating a profile page, making a game and a quiz, designing a style board, building a viral video and making a time lapse animation. Each activity is supported by a video and project starters which students use to remix and create their own stories. Lesson plans accompany the student activities.
