    Think. Create. Code

    Empower yourself to create and control digital information, and gain the computational thinking skills to tackle our most complex problems.

    What you'll learn

    • Computational thinking skills.
    • Introductory programming concepts, such as sequencing, iteration and selection.
    • Skills and knowledge of how to create art and basic animations with ProcessingJS.
    • Preparation for study of computer science or other programming languages

    Note: This doesn't appear to be a course where you will learn to code. It is to prepare you think so that when you learn a language, you will be able to think through the coding process. The focus on art and problem solving seems eerily familiar.
