Elementary Computer Science: Introduction to Coding will utilize Scratch Jr., an introductory programming language, to enable young students to create their own interactive stories and games. As students code with Scratch Jr, they learn to express themselves while solving problems and designing projects. Students will also develop sequencing skills and use math and language in a meaningful and motivating context. In Elementary Computer Science, children aren't just learning to code, they are coding to learn.
Session dates: Session 1A: 6/13/22 - 7/01/22 (8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.) (EST) - In Campus Broward or Online
