Our new Survey of Computer Science course is great for summer programs, after-school workshops, small group study, and any-time exploration by students who want to learn introductory coding skills!
This survey course is not a pre-requisite for any other KidCoder or TeenCoder course. It is ideal for students with limited time or those that want an easy, hands-on introduction to computer science outside of a graded classroom.
This course requires a Windows or Mac OS computer; click here for full system requirements.
