Introduction to CS Course- 100% Online
Before the pandemic restricted us from leaving our houses, the Girls in Computer Science Club at Del Norte High School held 3 successful workshops at our local library, in which we taught the basics of the C language to kids in grades 5-8. Unfortunately, we were unable to teach more workshops at the library and about a month has passed since we saw all of the incredibly bright students that attended. We know that many students were interested in continuing to learn C, so we created an 8-week course to teach the fundamentals of C.
What you can expect from this course
We will be reviewing everything we have already taught in our first meeting (on 4/18/2020 from 4-6 PM), so if you did not come to our library workshops, you'll do just fine catching up. This meeting is very important to attend all who are participating in this course! Please make sure to reach out if there is no way you can make it.
We will provide meeting links and assign weekly homework via email and you will be able to see recordings of all previous lessons (as well as extra videos on certain topics) on our website: shecancode.net.
During our meetings, we will have at least two teachers attending to lecture and help guide students through lessons, and we are available during the week if people would like additional help.
If you did not attend the library workshops, do not feel discouraged! We are here to help and would love to have you in our class.
Please sign up with this link, and you will receive an email with the first meeting link before 4/18/20.
