In this unit, students become computer engineers as they work to clean up a park and keep trash out of the landfill. They’ll sort and count items and decide which ones can be recycled. Then, they’ll design a program for a robot that takes trash to the right bin. Teachers can choose a fully unplugged lesson, not using digital devices at all, or follow the plugged version using robots.
