[Music] Hi! I’m Janelle. I’m an elementary school teacher in California.

I help teachers teach computer science using CS First.

Google’s free, introductory computer science curriculum is designed for students ages 9 to 14.

It uses instructional videos to help teachers introduce computer science to students.

In this series of videos, you will learn about computer science, CS First, and its teacher resources.

You'll get to try CS First as a student, and create your first class.

There is a companion deck linked on the right side of this video if you’d like to follow along.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about CS First!


Welcome to the "Getting Started with CS First" video series. In the next seven videos, we'll take an in-depth look at CS First resources available for teachers and learn how to use sample activities and themes in a classroom setting. 

Follow along with the “Getting Started with CS First” video series using the companion presentation below.
