Introduction to Coding

Crazy for Coding


Students will learn the basic concepts of computer science by exploring a variety of coding games and programs.  Learning to code develops problem-solving skills, digital confidence, and helps young people understand the world around them in a fun and exciting way. Student ideas are encouraged.    


What is Coding?

"Coding is the ability to read and write a machine language as well as to think computationally.  Learning to code can lead to outputs valuable in and of themselves, but the process of learning to code also develops problem-solving skills, (digital) confidence, and helps young people understand the world around them.  In many respects, we should encourage kids to code for similar reasons to those we give for encouraging them to play sports and learn an instrument: it’s good for their development."
