Create new worlds with computer science

For students in 4th grade
In the 14-week Creative Computing program, older elementary students will bring their imagination to life by coding their own creative projects, while learning the basics of computer science with their friends. Projects include animations, storytelling, the arts and game design.

 

Spring 2019 Course: CS First
Code an animation, story or game. Share with friends.

The activities introduce students to computer science and the visual programming language Scratch. Different themes attract and engage students of varying backgrounds and interests. No prior coding experience is required.
