Digital Wizardry

Do computer programs seem a bit like black magic to you? If you want to change that then this class is for you. This class is strictly for beginners with little-to-no experience in programming. How is internet and software really put together? Learn how to build the programs and games we use every day, and make web pages that look good and work well.

After this class, students will feel confident to join the conversation about computer programming, know where to get started on any computer challenge they may face in the future, and will be able to hack their lives by getting computers to do their bidding for them.
