Interactive video lesson plan for: CS First HOA with Teach for America

Activity overview:

Google CS First is increasing student access and exposure to computer science through after-school and summer programs that introduce programming in a collaborative and creative environment.

Students build projects using the online tool Scratch that are organized around thematic curricula, such as Fashion and Design, Storytelling, Art, Music, and Game Design. Content is delivered via online videos, and clubs are facilitated by teachers or community volunteers who work from training and scripts, also provided online.
