1. Storytelling

In Storytelling, students use computer science to tell fun and interactive stories. Storytelling emphasizes creativity by encouraging club members to tell a unique story each day.
2. Fashion & Design

In Fashion & Design, students learn how computer science and technology are used in the fashion industry while building fashion-themed programs, like a fashion walk, a stylist tool, and a pattern maker.
3. Art

In Art, students create animations, interactive artwork, photograph filters, and other exciting, artistic projects.
4. Friends

In Friends, students create projects for a friend! Projects include telling the story of how the friendship started, making a cooperative game, and imagining a company together.
5. Social Media

In Social Media, students create fun social media style applications and games while learning about the computer science concepts that enable these programs to work.
6. Sports

In Sports, students use computer science to simulate extreme sports, make their own fitness gadget commercial, and create commentary for a big sporting event.
7.Music & Sound

In Music & Sound, students use the computer to play musical notes, create a music video, and build an interactive music display while learning how programming is used to create music.
8. Game Design

In Game Design, students learn basic video game coding concepts by making different types of games, including racing, platform, launching, and more!
9. Animation Advanced

Students create fun and complex animated projects. This is an advanced curriculum, which means it teaches new concepts that are recommended for students who have already participated in at least two other CS First themes.
