Algorithmic Thinking and Computational Linguistics

The Algorithms and Linguistics page (http://www.education.rec.ri.cmu.edu/fire/naclo/) on The FIRE Project website is a site that introduces younger students to computer science and linguistics. Rather than focusing on programming, the website focuses on algorithmic thinking and problem-solving to engage students in computational thinking.

The goal is create unplugged materials, or problems solvable with pencil and paper, where students can practice using computer science and linguistics concepts.

Currently on the website there are algorithms and linguistics problems of varying difficulties so that a range of age groups can enjoy them.
