Educators will gain a strong baseline of fundamental programming knowledge, including an overview of programming languages, coding fundamentals, data structures and algorithms, source control, and how to put it all together to create meaningful solutions to problems.
By the end of the training, attendees should be able to write basic programs that solve problems, have a firm foundation for further programming knowledge, and be able to adequately teach it to classroom students.

Each lesson will be under 10 minutes long, making this easy-to-absorb and follow along.
