Introduction to Computing
CSR-100 (30 classes total, 1.5 hours per class)
Introduction to Computing teaches computational concepts and introduces programming through the development of art, games, music, and animations using Scratch 3. In addition to developing programming and computational skills, students draw upon their creativity and imagination while creating and sharing projects of interest to them.
This course is intended as a first step for younger students in grades 5 and 6 in growing from computer technology users to creators, instilling an interest in and curiosity about computer science and building core competencies of reasoning, logic, and problem solving. Students should be at or above the 5th grade level in mathematics.
Here is a short two-minute video showing a sampling of student projects:
