Follow these steps to create an account:

    Note: To use CS First with Google Classroom, you must use your Google Workspace for Education account to sign in to the CS First website.
  3. Complete your profile information.
  4. If you have a Google Workspace for Education account, you will have the opportunity to connect your CS First dashboard to Google Classroom at this time.
  5. After you have created your teacher account, you will see the CS First dashboard welcome message and you will have the option to add a class.

If you are a co-teacher, follow these steps to be added to a class. 


Students are the participants in a class. Students will watch a series of CS First videos that instruct them how to create a project in Scratch for CS First. Learn more about the student experience here.

Create a student account if: 

  • You are directed to do so by your teacher.
  • You would like to create CS First projects without being part of a class.
  • You want to work through lessons at your own pace.

There are multiple ways to sign in to CS First as a student. Students can sign in with a CS First student account, or with a Workspace for Education account.  A teacher must choose which type of student accounts they would like to use for their class.

  • Sign in with a CS First student account. More info.
  • Sign in with a Google Workspace for Education account. More info.
