What are the computer requirements for Semesters?

For most of our courses, students will need a Windows or Mac computer with audio and video capabilities. If your child will be using a Chromebook, the following courses can be run on Chromebooks:
​
- Coding: Scratch and VEX Virtual Robotics
- Creative: Vector Art and Audio Design with Scratch
- Coding: JavaScript and P5
- Coding: Python
- Coding: Java
​
​We also recommend the following for the best experience:
- A relatively recent computer/processor from the past 5 years
- A solid-state hard drive and 16GB of RAM (8GB can work, but it can also run into some issues and occasionally be a little slow)
