In the Ann Arbor Public Schools, we understand that computer science is a crucial aspect of our student’s futures. We are preparing our students by providing a framework and understanding of computer science essentials. The overarching concept is to help expose ALL students to a foundational understanding of programming skills by building a framework throughout elementary. Once students have gained a strong foundation they are able to make an informed decision if computer science is an interesting area for their future. Regardless of their choice, the students have all developed a basic understanding of coding and computer science.
