This work presents an approach how student-centered computer science lessons at secondary school level were captured and described as a collection of 24 patterns. This pattern network is supposed to support computer science teachers in designing student-centered computer science lessons. Each pattern emerged from an iterative process of combining practical classroom experiences with humanistic pedagogical theories. The pattern form is based on C. Alexander's approach  and was modified for computer science education. Hence a pattern includes a title, description, problem, forces, solution, UML visualization and a suggestion how to apply it in computer science lessons.
