Introduction to Computer Science with MakeCode Arcade

The Introduction to Computer Science with MakeCode Arcade curriculum is a flexible and approachable course adapted from the TEALS Introduction to Computer Science curriculum and built with Microsoft MakeCode Arcade as its core teaching platform. The curriculum similarly has its roots in UC Berkeley CS 10. This is a course for a wide range of high school students from diverse backgrounds. The original TEALS course has been successfully implemented in hundreds of high schools.

Introduction to Computer Science with MakeCode Arcade is an engaging course that explores a variety of basic computational thinking and programming concepts through a project-based learning environment. Every unit culminates in a comprehensive project and roughly 75% of student time is spent building projects and practicing the skills they are learning.

Thank you Microsoft for building the MakeCode Arcade course but its needs to be better organized to be useable in a classroom setting.
I am having so much troubling just accessing the Intro CS Makecode ARCADE course.
Each file has to be individually downloaded - instead of it being available as a consolidated zip folder.
Please let me know where the Lab solutions are posted. - my email is pgupta@brunswickschool.org

Hello Mrs. Gupta,

If you already have access to the course materials repository on GitHub, there is a built-in option to download all the files as a zip. Click the code button when you first navigate to repo
and then hit the Download ZIP button.

The link you sent does not work -

thank you for your response.
the green ‘code’ button takes you to the zip folder which I downloaded BUT it has the course material with SNAP. But I am looking for the Intro CS with MakeCode Arcade - I need the course along with the Instructor solution for all the labs.
PLEASE HELP- i have been requesting the link for this course from a week.
