# Algorithms 2: Algorithms Unplugged

< Back to Building Block### Overview

In this project, you will write an algorithm (a set of instructions) then use a set of symbols to create a flowchart. (estimated 30 min)

### Learning Objectives

**By the end of this activity, participants will be able to...**

- Construct an algorithm using a constrained number of commands
- Translate algorithm into a flowchart as a blueprint to solve a problem
- Compare a computer’s capacity to follow an algorithm to a human’s capacity to do so

### Vocabulary

**Algorithm:**a step-by-step set of instructions**Flowchart:**a diagram that visually presents the sequence of steps (flow of data) through a procedure or program (processing system)

### Materials and Resources

- Scrap paper
- Pen or pencil
- Post-it notes (optional)
