Computer science is not just vocational for getting a job; today, computer science is completely foundational for any job you may want to have in the next 30 years. Learn how technology works, learn how software is changing our world, and how to participate in that world.
Here, students create a game or story written from a second-person point of view in Scratch. Then, empower the audience to take on the role of the protagonist in your world and make choices that determine the main character’s actions and the plot’s outcome.
This course furthers the students use of CS concepts and vocabulary required to work in any coding language. Using a block-based system, we can focus on the application of concepts and technical problem-solving techniques without the associated syntax. Additionally, design thinking, strategy, planning, and execution will be a few of the cross-cutting skills honed in this course.
By the end of the course, students will be able to take a prompt in any subject and combine it with the power of new computer science and software engineering knowledge to showcase an original computer program with confidence.
