  • Supports the GCISD Portrait of a Graduate by teaching computational thinking in order to develop skilled problem solvers.
  • Provides instruction that demystifies coding and programming.

  • Intentionally promotes opportunities for all learners to engage in computational thinking.
  • Is based on K-8 technology applications standards and vertically aligned with high school computer science standards.
