Format of Course

This course utilizes a online learning approach. The content is provided through a mix of web-based and physical exercises, with students writing and running code in the browser and then downloading code to their physical devices for further testing and exploration.

Each lesson is broken down into modules, which are made up of video tutorials, short quizzes, pseudocode exercises, physical explorations, example programs, and written programming exercises. We have included multiple fun, simple and interactive games so that students can remember the lessons in a more engaging way.
