Yep, and you'll build projects for me.
Today, you’ll learn what computer science is,see the friendship-themed projects you’ll make,and finally, make your very first program in this Google club!
CS First Friends is a computer science club.
Computer science uses computers to make amazing projects(also called programs) that allow people to entertain,solve problems, do work,and save time.
In this club, you'll learn many different ways computer science relates to things youdo and see every day.
You might be surprised!
People use computer science to build all kinds of projects and solve many types of problems,from collecting health data about athletes, to studying animal-computer interaction tomake it easier for service dogs to assist their humans in the home.
In this club, you’ll be introduced to some of the incredible creations people buildand problems people solve using computer science.
When this club ends, you and a friend will have a collection of your own stories, games,and quizzes you made while learning computer science.
Take a look at some sample projects you’ll get to build over the next 8 club sessions.
On day 2, you'll build a project with two truths and a lie, to see how well your clubfriend knows you.
Do you think you'll guess my lie?
