Comp Sci

After school field trip to visit our teachers at their Etsy office!

After school field trip to visit our teachers at their Etsy office! / November 2013

This is a semester-long survey course designed to offer students a hands-on introduction to Computer Science. Students will use their problem solving skills and creativity to build interactive programs using a freely available graphical programming language. We will also show some beautiful applications of computing that have changed the world, talk about the history of computing, and discuss current events related to technology.  No previous knowledge of computer science or programming is required.

This class is a zero-period class offered by Erica Greene, Amy Ciavolino, Mike Pascual and Brian Papa in collaboration with TEALS, an organization that brings technologists into schools to teach introductory computer science courses.
