San Benito High School next school year will offer an “Introduction to Computer Science” course for ninth- and tenth-graders.
The full-year, a-g certified elective will cover topics such as programming, physical computing, HTML/CSS, user interface design, and data.
Students will create original projects and engage with computer science as a means for creativity, communication, problem solving, and fun. By the end of the course, students will have used the software development process and fundamental programming constructs to design apps, create web pages, develop games, use data to solve problems, and program interactions with the physical world through a variety of sensors and hardware.
Throughout the course, students will be encouraged to reflect on what they have learned about computer science and how it affects their world.
