Computer Science Unplugged, recommended in the ACM model curriculum for K-12 Computer Science, is a series of free to use, technology-free, kinesthetic, computer science activities for precollege and college students. These fully developed activities can be used as material for K-12 curriculum, outreach to schools, and fun supplements to math or computing classes. Topics include binary numbers, searching, sorting, networks, image representation, error detection and correction, text compression, minimal spanning trees, finite state automata, and routing and deadlock in networks. As part of a new global initiative (Unplugged has been translated into Chinese, Korean, Swedish, Indonesian and French), we are introducing Unplugged++ which will include more activities, more on-line resources, translation into other languages, local and national youth contests based upon unplugged concepts, and more.
