COMPUTER SCIENCE PRINCIPLES

COMPUTER SCIENCE PRINCIPLES

In this year-long afternoon program, students are introduced to the foundations of modern computing including programming, algorithms, the Internet, big data, digital privacy and security, and the societal impacts of computing. Emphasis seeks to provide students with a “future proof” foundation in computing principles so that they are adequately prepared with both the knowledge and skills to live and meaningfully participate in our increasingly digital society, economy, and culture. This project-based course teaches students how to apply mathematics and analytics to solve complex problems, build solutions with digital tools, and use computational thinking and design processes.
