1. Introduction


[Music] Hi! I'm Janelle.

I’m an elementary school teacher in California.

I help teachers in my district teach computer science using CS First.

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

The curriculum uses instructional videos, which help teachers introduce students to computer science.

In this series of videos, you will learn about computer science, CS First and it's 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.

If you’re already familiar with computer science, consider skipping the video that explains what computer science is.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about CS First!
