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."

At the end of club today, your fellow members will take your fashion poll so you can learn about their preferences. Add four sprites that other club members will vote to express their preferences. You can build a project like the one you see here by choosing sprites from the library. You may need to use the shrink tool to make the sprite small enough to fit on the stage. You can also use images from the CS First library. To do this, download an image from the "images" link or copy it to your backpack from the "Additional Images Project" link next to this video. To learn how to add images to your Scratch project, watch the "Upload Images" video by clicking on its link.
Now, it's your turn. Add four sprites to your project.
Spend only a few minutes choosing your sprites so you leave enough time to create the fashion poll.
