The TeenCoder Windows and Game courses are designed for 9th-12th grade students who may be interested in computer science as a career, hobby, or who may need a computer course for high school graduation. Build your school transcript with a high quality technical elective that is easily recognized by college professors. Each TeenCoder course uses the same fun, easy-to-learn style as our KidCoder series but covers computer science topics in more depth.

You can also purchase optional Instructional Videos, which are great supplements for the audio/visual learner. For every lesson in a course, we have a matching 5 to 10 minute video, which will cover the same concepts as the lesson. You may see animation and narration describing a concept or a recorded demonstration showing exactly how to complete a task. The textbook is still needed to complete the course, and the videos are optional, but they are a great addition to our curriculum!
