About the course

This course is designed for beginners. In the 6-week course, students will learn the basic knowledge of computer science and many core programming concepts. There will be 12+ fun and interesting Scratch projects for students to advance their hands-on coding skills.

Each class consists of 2 sessions: Lecture and Coding:

  • Lecture Session: this session focuses on computer science knowledge and coding concepts
  • Coding Session: this session is for students to practice the knowledge they learned in the lecture session.

The ultimate goal of this course is to build up the interest of computer science and establish a solid fundation of programming knowledge. Our students will be able to apply what they have learned to other related academic fields, such as math and science. They will feel comfortable and ease to learn any other programming language in the future. At the end of this course, students will receive the CodingMind certificate.
