Course Description:

In “Ladybugs Take Flight 1”, students are introduced to basic coding principles that include (but are not limited to): use of start commands, variables, changes in the coordinate plane, loops and forever loops

 

Initially through storytelling, students will use the Scratch programming language to bring two ladybug characters to life. 

 

Historical references are utilized to provide context in the development of the first computers, a dance called the “Jitterbug”, and the roles of women in early computer science fields.
