Four simple experiments to practice computational thinking

All four experiments included in this project require only basic experience with using the TI-Nspire CX II Technology. Coding experience in Python is helpful.

Many STEM projects are centered around coding. They require the knowledge of at least one coding language. They often involve many lines of code to achieve the solution of a problem. This all takes time, often exceeding the 45 minutes of a normal classroom lesson. In contrast, computational thinking does not require a lot of knowledge up front, as it is rather skill based than based on knowledge. It does require practice, however. This is what the four simple experiments of this project are aiming at.
