Introduction to the World of Computers

“ When people think about computer science, they imagine people with pocket protectors and thick glasses who code all night. ”  Marissa Mayer (CEO of Yahoo!)


Ghana Code Club’s Introduction to the World of Computers will forever change how Marissa Mayer illustrates our thoughts of computer science. 

This program will lead students to create their own Journey of the Hero, and become Superheroes with the power of programming.  Your child’s powerful imagination will guide her, and with Ghana Code Club’s use of “Plugged and Unplugged” activities, she will learn computer science fundamentals. By the end of this program, students will

  • Solve puzzles using block programming on the computer and through interactive “unplugged” activities (without a computer).
  • Learn binary code and programming concepts (sequence, conditional, loops...) 
  • Be introduced to the concept of a function. 
  • Understand the components of a computer and what they are used for. 

This class is designed specifically for youth. Our instructors make it fun and interactive by using the character strengths of The Hero on his or her way to becoming a great engineer.
