About Intro to CSF
Elementary school is the ideal time for students to first engage in Computer Science. Computer science is about creativity, problems solving and persistence.
Students will create their own games, art, and digital stories. Lesson progressions start with “unplugged” activities that teach computational thinking skills without computers. The lessons then have students go deeper with the skill in a “plugged” (computer-based) activity. (YouTube: K-5 teachers and students talk about the program)
