Introduction

Discover programming through art, music, and math. Collaborate with other students as you plan and build amazing projects using visual programming. Create interactive greetings, experiment with sounds and musical notes, make your own comics, design characters and animate them, generate math art, and build level-based games.
At the very end of the course, students will improve their presentation skills by demonstrating their newfound knowledge and creating their own game from scratch.

No prior programming experience required.
