What EC’s can I do during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Ive been trying to find other things to do, but I can’t really think of anything. I’ve been writing computer programs and am currently working with a computer science teacher on getting one of them promoted to my district.

But I don’t have any other EC’s besides that and tutoring kids with math In my neighborhood. I’m going to to keep writing and promoting computer programs. Until I have enough money for a Mac Book. I’m saving up to bye one so I can start producing iOS apps. But I want to do more but I can’t find anything locally due to the pandemic. I was wondering if any of you have found more things to do online for EC’s.

Also when I apply to colleges in the future How would I label those EC’s? Could I make producing web applications and iOS apps into two different EC’s?

Hi! Here's a video about some volunteer work that you can do from home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPONSk0SOO8&feature=youtu.be According to the channel, the activities mentioned do count as EC's. I haven't done any of these activities yet, but they seem interesting and I'll probably try them soon!

In regards to your last two questions, I'm a rising junior and I don't know much about formatting college apps, but I hope this was helpful nonetheless. Have a great rest of your day!
