Computer Science for All

What Does a Computer Science Education Look Like?

Computer science can be the subject of a semester-long course, a multi-year sequence, or incorporated into other content areas, such as science, math, or art.

When you enter a computer science classroom you may find students:

  • Working together to solve problems

  • Writing code and adapting existing code to their own projects

  • Working with teachers and peers to troubleshoot code

  • Building physical prototypes as part of the design process

  • Participating in unplugged activities (that do not use technology), to introduce them to CS fundamentals

  • Using online resources to look up examples and find resources to assist with problem-solving
