Introduction to Coding (Weeklong)

Class Description:

Total beginner? This is the class for you. FUN1a is an introductory course to computer science and coding, using Javablocks. Javablocks is our block-based coding language tailor-made for easy transition into typed Java programming. Students are expected to have little to no experience with code. The main goal of this course is to help young students look at programs through the eyes of the computer, and learn how to code by changing and manipulating information. By the end of this class, students should feel comfortable creating and customizing their own programs. FUN1a students are also going to work on basic computer mechanics and skills, preparing them to advance to through our curriculum.
