We are excited to announce the availability of a new course to get your students hooked on computer science! Creative Coding through Games and Apps is now available for schools across the world, for free!
Creative Coding through Games and Apps engages early-teens in their first extended exploration of computer science. Students learn how to code by working in a real software development environment to design, program and publish mobile apps and games. Learning to code by creating real products, students discover how to make amazing things and have an impact on their world.
Creative Coding through Games and Apps is designed for a broad range of students, including those who may have never before considered programming. The course can be delivered with success by any teacher, regardless of computer science background, and includes all necessary materials for teacher prep, lesson plans, presentations, student assignments, homework, projects and tests. Featuring online and in-class lessons that emphasise hands-on coding, the course can be taught via any modern web browser on phones, tablets, laptops or desktop computers. The course length is flexible, requiring 6, 9, 12 or 18 weeks, depending on the time available in your school. And the combination of online plus in-class resources provides flexibility in teaching style, allowing teachers to choose the right balance for their students of in-class instruction and out-of-class study.
