In Storytelling, students use computer science to tell fun and interactive stories. Storytelling emphasizes creativity by encouraging club members to tell a unique story each day.
In Friends, students are encouraged to sign up with a friend or make a new friend in the club. Friends emphasizes teamwork by allowing club members to tell the story of how their friendship started and imagine a company together.
In Fashion & Design, students learn how computer science and technology are used in the fashion industry while building fashion-themed programs, like a fashion walk, a stylist tool, and a pattern maker.
In Art, students create animations, interactive artwork, photograph filters, and other exciting, artistic projects.
In Social Media, students create fun social media style applications and games while learning about the computer science concepts that enable these programs to work.
In Sports, students use computer science to simulate extreme sports, make their own fitness gadget commercial, and create commentary for a big sporting event.
In Music & Sound, students use the computer to play musical notes, create a music video, and build an interactive music display while learning how programming is used to create music.
In Game Design, students learn basic video game coding concepts by making different types of games, including racing, platform, launching, and more!
Students create fun and complex animated projects. This is an advanced curriculum, which means it teaches new concepts that are recommended for students who have already participated in at least two other CS First themes.
In this sample activity students animate an ocean wave to create a setting, then tell a story that takes place on the high seas.
In this sample activity students tell a story using the characters from Cartoon Network’s "The Amazing World of Gumball."
Be a designer and programmer – bring the Google logo to life using code.
In each activity of Google CS First Animation, you used computer science to solve difficult problems.
Take a look back at all you’ve accomplished and learned in these eight activities.
Animated a monster's feelings.
You made a storyboard.
Made an Android story Created a parallax animation and learned more about variables Designed a game that animated according to your users’ controls Told a story that animated two characters Manipulated strings to animate a user’s name And, programmed your own studio logo to use in all your projects!
You can continue to access your Scratch account and your projects after this club ends.
The videos and activities you worked on are also available on the CS First website.
You can explore any of the other available themes.
Scratch has a large community of other computer scientists who, like you, are learning and creating with Scratch.
On the Scratch website, you can explore and comment on other people’s creations and share your own.
In high school or college, you may have the chance to take computer science courses.
You should take them and learn more!
If you don’t have a class at your school, search online for free classes.
Computer science is too important not to know.
Congratulations on all that you have accomplished.
Keep learning and coding!
