Data Structures

Data structures help keep things organized and store information needed to run a program or algorithm. In this module, we provide you with the tools and resources to help students break down how data structures work in order to help keep code stacks organized in a fun and easy to understand way!

Topics this unit will cover as your child grows up:

Variables & Objects

Create, name, and understand how variables can be applied in all aspects of coding. Learn about why we need variables, how to hold stored values, and when to group for efficiency.
