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.
Today, you'll get a chance to explore the tool you'll use
to create your art, Scratch.
And you'll create your first computer program in this club.
