I'm thrilled to spend this time with students exploring the world of Computer Science! This is such an amazing field of study, and we will have fun discovering every aspect of it!
Computer Science Discovery I is all about exploring and discovering the main concepts of Computer Science and technology. We begin our journey by learning about computing systems, how to build simple to more complex algorithms, how to problem-solve and so much more. We’ll make many connections and see how Computer Science relates to all other industries. We’ll investigate career paths and see just where it can take us. We won’t just learn one computing language, instead we’ll learn how each computing language translates into animation, sounds, and texts and, most importantly, solutions.
Computer Science Discovery II and III dig even deeper into design – web design, app design, game design, and robotics. This is where we put a more detailed focus on the areas of Computer Science.
Robotics plays a very important role in each of our Computer Science classes. We’ll learn to program a variety of bots to do a variety of incredible challenges. Again, our focus is solutions, so we'll get our robots to work to help us find solutions to so many real-world problems.
I ask students to ‘try’ – put some effort into learning new concepts and to try new methods of learning. In this class, the ‘need-to-know’ and the ‘want-to-know’ far outweigh any grade.
If students have questions or concerns, please have them message me through Canvas. This is the best and fastest way for them to reach me – and - they should always know that I am happy to help.
Now…..let’s get techy!
