Join us as we explore Swift Playgrounds (a creative coding app by Apple) and experience the power of the coder’s mindset. Swift Playgrounds lets you solve interactive puzzles as you learn how to code. It provides a live view of what your code is doing with animation and interactive 3D models. We will explore Swifts Playgrounds' comprehensive Everyone Can Code curriculum designed to help you teach coding to students from kindergarten to college. This will be just an introduction class with more advanced Swift Playground classes to come.

The activities were a great way for me to visualize what I need to do. Also there were instances when we were able to go through an activity, then choose an topic & design an activity that followed the guidelines.
