Three Computer Science Foundation books for learning STEM.

Computer Science Foundations

Computer Science Foundations is a standards-aligned, supplemental curriculum for Sphero BOLT built on the K12 Computer Science Framework Principles. Scaffolded across three courses and 72 lessons, teachers and students build Draw, Block, and Text canvases. They then integrate these concepts into curricular content: everything from polygons and poetry to logic-puzzlers and compliment-givers.
