Control Flow

Code terminology can feel overwhelming, but it is less daunting when you help children understand core concepts and techniques. Control flows are used to steer the direction of an application and give instructions when a program comes to a fork in the road. In this module, we provide you with the tools and resources to help students break down this big concept in code.

Topics this unit will cover as your child grows up:
