About Code.org CS Fundamentals
Your students will create their own games, art, and digital stories that they can share - all while developing problem-solving, collaboration, persistence, and computational thinking skills. Do your students love to get up and move around? Half of the lessons are "unplugged" activities that teach computational thinking and digital citizenship skills without computers.
The six CS Fundamentals courses each begin with a grade-appropriate entry point and structured ramp-up of concepts designed for students new to computer science. The progression of Courses A-F builds upon each other to ensure continuing students stay interested and learn new things. This allows for the same course at any grade level to be used for all students, regardless of experience level.
Code.org is a nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Visit code.org to learn more.
