CS70: Elementary Programming Course C

Course Description

In this course, students learn programming fundamentals through an intuitive web-based program. The learning environment makes learning programming concepts easy and fun!
The course is taught through a series of mini-lectures and programming challenges. Students will complete these challenges through block based programming, an easy drag and drop system. These challenges are designed to make learning as enjoyable as playing a game. After learning the fundamentals, their knowledge will be put to the test by having students create a mini-game using what they have learned so far. By the end of the class, your child will be eager to learn more in order to create their own games with even more complexity.
