This course features the language of AP Computer Science, but starts at the most rudimentary level to accommodate the beginning programmer. The course covers a variety of introductory concepts including variables/types, input/output, conditional and loop statements, standard and user created classes with coverage of arrays if time permits. Students will learn via watching live teacher-shared screen examples, hands-on practice and accessing exclusive YouTube channel content. McQuaid students earning the recommendation of the instructor may elect to advance to the AP CS level course upon request. Either a PC or Mac with download of free software and Internet access is required. A mandatory Zoom session focused on setting up each participant’s computer is required the week prior to the start of the sessions.
