Computer Science

Welcome To Computer Science Class!

Welcome students to our 1st Computer Science class at Roosevelt Middle School!  We are on an exciting journey to learn about programming, design, gaming, and graphic design.

 

 

Course Description

In this introductory course, students will learn the foundational concepts and skills of computer science (CS). They will transition from being the consumers of technology to the creators of technology, and they will explore how to use the power of computers to solve big, real-world problems. The course is designed to be fun, engaging, relevant, collaborative, and creative. Students will build their understanding of computing concepts using many unplugged activities and will apply their understanding through creative projects in the Scratch programming language, where they will learn to make animations, music, drawings, and games.

 

Course Goals

  • Introduce computer science as an engaging and relevant discipline.

  • Develop foundational skills and knowledge in computer science.

  • Strengthen problem solving and critical thinking skills.

  • Foster creativity, collaboration, and communication.

  • Explore issues raised by present and future societal impacts of computing.

  • Demonstrate that all students can be successful in computer science.
