Course Description:  This course is aimed at students who have no experience in programming, but would like to get a quick introduction to the field. This course introduces students to the basics of programming, algorithm development, and computational thinking. These are essential skills for a 21st century professional life and can complement a student’s training in other disciplines. Some students may also continue to pursue further study using a CS or DS minor, CS certificate, etc.

Programming is a highly creative activity that can be rather fulfilling, but the stigma surrounding it can scare people away. This course is focusing on a series of fun interactive activities that will see the students discover for themselves the basics of computational thinking. The aim of this course is to show that programming can be fun, and that anyone can do it.


Prerequisites & Notes
None. No prior computer programming experience is required.
