The computer science class is a one year elective class that is open to students in the high school. It provides an introduction to the field of computer science. In the first semester, students are taught about the basic components of a computer, how the components work, and how to diagnose and repair minor problems. They are also taught how to write computer programs involving control structures, data structures, functions, and input and output. In the second semester, students are taught about web development where they learn how to design and implement web sites. They also learn about basic robotics and get to build and program NXT robots. In both semesters, the student learning process involves a combination of conceptual knowledge and hands-on work.
