Welcome to Computer Science!
Foundations of Interactive Design
This course will provide an exploratory foundation in design and development of websites and games. Through integrated instructional activities, students will have opportunities to apply employability skills and to research possible career options in the information technology area. They will also complete many hands-on activities to build a strong foundation in designing interactive coding programs. Capstone projects will be incorporated at the completion of all standards as time allows. Students who successfully complete this course will be prepared for the following pathways upon entering high school: Web & Digital Design, Web Development, and Game Design.
All classroom announcements, communication and assignments are posted on your child’s Canvas class page for Interactive Design.
