This course, built in collaboration with Google, provides a gentle, but thorough, introduction to programming using Python. You will learn the core concepts and techniques needed to create programs and perform basic data analysis. By the end of this course, you’ll be ready to pursue further study in computer science and unlock more advanced programming courses.
Students will choose a STEAM project to research, develop, and implement into an appropriate setting (school, after-school program, museum). Students will utilize the design process and a variety of resources (educational technology, materials, tools, machines) in a Makerspace environment to safely and efficiently develop solutions to problems that require integration of concepts and skills from multiple disciplines. Seminar content includes cross-disciplinary content instruction and pedagogical strategies for working with a variety of learners. Learners will demonstrate competencies that include planning and organization; assessment of learning; reflection on teaching; interdisciplinary collaboration; and inquiry-based approaches to teaching and learning.
This introductory course provides students interested in a career in public health with a broad and comprehensive overview of concepts, empirical research, and public health practice in public and community health sciences.

In the second half of the course, students will learn about social and behavioral theories of health-related behavior change, health promotion strategies and methods, and public policy.
