We believe that coding is an essential skill for helping students thrive in a technology-driven future. Learning to code unlocks creativity, fosters collaboration, develops problem-solving skills, and opens career paths.
See free resources from Apple that introduce students ages 8 + to coding through project-based classroom learning. We will explore lessons in the student and teacher guides, and dive into interactive coding puzzles/activities for both in and out of the classroom.
