This program is designed for students who are new to the principles of computer science.
Students will feel confident and ready to take on the challenges of the AP Computer Science Principles course.
To participate in this program, students will need a computer to run the Zoom application and a web browser for programming exercises.
Please install the Zoom application (Zoom Desktop Client) on your child’s PC. During the course, your child uses the screen-sharing function of the Zoom application to get full support from our instructor. Zoom application: https://zoom.us/download
Please use a PC, Mac, or other devices that can run the Zoom application. Old Chromebooks and tablets may have performance issues and impede practice. We recommend having an additional device to view the Zoom screen while using the entire screen of the primary device for programming.
