Intro to Programming 1 w/ Minecraft (Block programming) - This course introduces students to computer science and coding using Minecraft. Coding with blocks allows students to focus on the fundamental principles of coding without the challenging initial learning curve required for traditional programming languages. Students will be led through activities with incrementally more advanced building blocks. Each block is similar in structure to the syntax and style of real world programming languages. As students learn to program by snapping blocks together, they are laying a foundation for more advanced programming languages. Students will learn about conditional statements, loops, and functions.

Course Objectives:

  1. Describe computer science and coding, and its importance.
  2. Play and maneuver in Minecraft.
  3. Understand the fundamentals programming using block code.
  4. Change their Minecraft world through coding.

Intro to Web Design 1 - The Web Design course covers the basics of Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and JavaScript- the three key languages for building any website. Recommended for students 9-12 grade.
