MyCS with the Finch

Scratch

MyCS Middle Years Computer Science is an introduction to computer science designed for middle school students by researchers at Harvey Mudd University. The course is available for free on the MyCS page. MyCS uses Scratch, and the curriculum units can be easily extended to include the Finch!

The main units of the course are shown below, along with suggestions for incorporating the Finch. On the MyCS page, the Finch is included as Unit 9, which contains many of the same suggestions. You can find additional Finch lessons and activities here.
