Computational Thinking and Problem Solving for 7 – 12 years old
To put it simply, it is to analyse a problem and set out a series of logical steps and rules any human or computer would understand. To achieve that, the first step is to break down a complex problem into smaller, more manageable pieces. Using those pieces you look for patterns, focusing on details that are relevant to solving the problem while leaving out those that are not.
