Today, you created a viral video animation to tellyour audience about an important issue.
You used Computer Science concepts you learned in past daysincluding broadcast. You can also share the projectthrough any social media platforms you use.
You have learned how to make social media games, animationsand tools using Computer Science. However, social mediais just a small part of what you can do withComputer Science. Computer Science is a way to solveproblems and create projects using computers.
Every person, in every field of study, has problemsthat can be solved with the tools that you're learningin this club. People use Computer Science to solve manydifferent and unique problems. For example,curing diseases, creating interactive school presentations.
Finding solutions to global hunger and food shortages.
Keeping track of homework assignments, manufacturingproducts with robots. Recording music.
As you can see, there's an endless list of problems thatComputer Science can solve.
There are many different ways to continue using computerscience after the CS First club ends. You might havethe option to take another CS First club.
You can also continue to build projects in scratchon your own and even create projects for school.
Like, interactive presentations and educational games.
In high school, you'll have opportunities to learn moreComputer Science. Some schools offer Computer Sciencerelated clubs, like robotics or game design.
You might also have the option to take a Computer Scienceclass. These classes might include, Exploring ComputerScience or ECS. AP Computer Science or CS Principles.
After high school, you can study Computer Sciencein college. Most colleges and universities offerComputer Science majors. At some schools, you can evenchoose to specialize in things that interest you.
Like, game design, medicine, computational biologycomputer security, software engineering and many more.
Because Computer Science is so helpful, in so many fields,nearly every industry needs tech savvy people who understandand can use Computer Science.
Major tech companies like Google and Facebookneed Computer Scientists, but so do other industries.
Like, manufacturing, health care, the military,finance and education.
While you might decide to pursue a different pathin life, understanding Computer Science can still benefityou whatever you choose to do.
In just seven days of this CS First club, you have beenable to accomplish a lot.
The next steps in learning Computer Science will bemuch easier now that you have developed a basicunderstanding of mini CS concepts.
Seek out opportunities in high school and beyond to expandyour knowledge.
