This course will show students the creative side of programming and coding.

Unlike other classes, students will be taught leadership, problem solving skills, and use different coding languages and technologies to create digital projects in class. These projects can range from making music and art, to creating apps, games, and websites. The curriculum doesn’t just stop there, it also covers algorithms, data sets, the internet, cybersecurity, and more!
