Hello and welcome to CS First Art.

Over the next eight days of this club, you'll get to create some cool art projects while you explore exciting computer science concepts.

Today, you'll learn what computer science is, preview the art projects you'll make in this club, and finally, get to create your very first computer program in this CS First Club.

CS First Art is a computer science club.

Computer science uses computers to make amazing projects, also called programs that allow people to play, entertain themselves and others, solve problems, do work and save time.

In this club, you'll learn many different ways computer science relates to things you do and see everyday.

You might be surprised.

In this club, the projects you will build involve creating art.

However, people use computer science to build all kinds of projects and solve many types of problems from communicating between friends to finding cures for diseases.

Over the next eight club sessions, you'll be introduced to some of the incredible creations people build and problems people solve using computer science.

You will also learn how to use computer science to create your own art.

When this club ends, you will have a portfolio of your own art creations and will have developed a basic understanding of many computer science concepts.

Take a look at these projects that you'll have the chance to build over the next eight club sessions.
