In this new short course you will learn about computer science and develop the ability to formulate problems logically. You will design, write and test code through the development of programs, apps, games, animations or websites.
How will Coding [SC] be useful to me?
Computer science is present in every aspect of modern society. Correctly-functioning software systems allow airplanes to fly from one city to another, give out money at the ATM and diagnose the level of glucose in your blood.
Understanding how computer hardware and software operate and relate to everyday life is an increasingly important area of learning for students.
Problem solving and computational thinking skills are developed in this course as students build and create software projects using their own ideas and imagination.
The course looks to build on any coding skills that primary students might have acquired while offering insight into possible future studies in computer science and software engineering.
