Design your own Google Logo
Shared by: UT Austin IEEE Computer Society
Recommended Grades: 6th, 7th, 8th
The Challenge: Use your creativity and imagination to bring the Google logo to life using code. Make the letters dance, tell a story, or create a game. You can learn the basics of coding with this activity and learn all about how the professionals do it! If you finish this activity, head over to the Hour of Code website and choose whichever coding activity you’d like! With Scratch and CS First, anyone can become a designer and programmer for the day!
Head to Google for Education to get started. See the instructions and get creating. Can you create a Google logo that matches today's Girl Day theme (see below)?
Share a picture of your Google logo on Flipgrid.
Recommended Materials: Computer, Keyboard, Enthusiasm!
How does this activity connect to STEM and today’s Girl Day theme of Moving Around: Land, Water, Air, and Space? Engineers have to be artistic and represent the world in technology. Represent Land, Water, Air, and space into your Google logo!
- Make the L in “Google” a Tree and have an earth/plant preservation themed logo
- Tell the story of water filtration or the water cycle through your coded logo
- Make your logo space themed!
- The possibilities are endless! Get creative!
Our freshman representative worked on the same Google Logo Challenge. Check out some of their designs and fun explanations in the demo video.
IEEE Computer Society at The University of Texas at Austin
The IEEE Computer Society at The University of Texas at Austin works to connect students who are highly interested in the field of computer engineering with companies who can provide insight to this industry. We find it extremely important that students be exposed to real-world engineering projects, and assisting them in this endeavor is an essential part of what we do.
IEEECS members include engineering and computer science students interested in topics like computer architecture, embedded systems, data sciences, and software engineering. Over 72% of upper-division ECE students have a focus in one of these areas, and that number is rapidly increasing!
