To earn this badge you will need to show that you understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise instructions.
  1. Task 1 Show you understand what algorithms are

    For this task, you need to demonstrate that you understand what algorithms are.

    There are many ways you could do this. You could upload a story to Makewaves that will help someone else to understand what we mean by the word 'algorithm'.

    You could get someone to record a video of you talking, or perhaps draw a picture to give as an example.

    Make sure the evidence you upload demonstrates your understanding of algorithms.

  2. Task 2 Provide clear instructions for a computer program

    Demonstrate that you are able to give clear instructions for a computer program.

    For example, you could program a toy to move by giving it a set of instructions. There are lots of programmable toys you could use to do this, such as Bee-Bot, Constructa-Bot or Roamer. You could even 'program' a person to move around!

    Write about what you did in a story on Makewaves.
