Intro to Computer Sciences
Introduction to Computer Science is designed to be a basic introduction to computer sciences have never programmed before. This course is a segue into the high school computer science courses. According to PLTW, "Students work in teams to create apps for mobile devices using MIT App Inventor®. They explore the impact of computing in society and build skills in digital citizenship and cybersecurity. Beyond learning the fundamentals of programming, students build computational thinking skills by applying computer science to collaboration tools, modeling and simulation, and data analysis. In addition, students transfer the understanding of programming gained in App Inventor to text-based programming in Python® and apply their knowledge to create algorithms for games of chance and strategy."
