NEW CLASS! Intro to Computer Programming - Dual Credit Opportunity
tara.long

Have you ever thought, "I wish there was an app for that...?" What if you got to use class time to build that app? You're in luck! Next fall, Ellensburg High School is offering new classes unlike any you've taken before. You'll learn how to go beyond just using computers—you'll begin to create the games, apps, and programs you see a need for today!

The best part is that you don't need any experience to make awesome things in this class - make a game, create an app, or build a web page that your friends, family, and school can use!

What else can you do with computer science? Watch this inspiring video.

No matter what you want to do one day—whether it's art, medicine, or history—computer science will help you make your ideas come to life.

Students - sign up for INTRO TO PROGRAMMING or email Joell Boast with any questions. (joell.boast@esd401.org)
