Rosies Runtime Activity

Engage Your Students in Computer Science That Feels Like Play

In Rosie's Runtime – an unplugged computer science activity from PLTW Launch – students get an introduction to computer science through an interactive game that rivals recess.

Using a life-sized game board and "code cards," students direct Rosie the Robotic Dog through a maze. This activity introduces them to the way computers "think" by putting precise commands into the correct sequence to create a working program. As they help Rosie jump over mud puddles and gather bones, students have opportunities to learn from failed attempts by finding and fixing "bugs" in their program.
