Welcome to Computer Science

You don't need to know how to code in order to teach your students! Show them learning is a lifelong skill by learning along with them. Take this activity for example; the code is on the left, and the result is on the right. Can you decipher this code and figure out how the picture was drawn? Adjust the numbers, does it make sense now? This activity is an excellent start to a unit (or just an hour) on coding. After a few lessons, bring this activity back and see how much more sense it makes to all of you!
