Explore, imagine and create! That is the core of Creative Computing. The students will create computational artifacts (like games, animations, music composition) using ideas from their lives and interests. They will reflect on their own projects and learn how to provide feedback on other students’ projects. The goal of this class is to increase fluency with computational thinking and programming concepts.

It offers opportunities for students to design and build while engaging with interactions with others as co-creators, reviewers and coaches to reflect on their creative process.
