This workshop introduces data types and variables, control structures (sequencing, looping, branching) and modularity using functions. Algorithm development, testing, and documentation will be integrated. Students will complete sample exercises to illustrate each concept.

The workshop content covers Introduction to Computer Science (ICS) standards ICS-2.1 to ICS-2.9 recommended for grade 9 and Computer Science – Middle Level standard 6-8.PA.2 recommended for grade levels 6 to 8.
