This one year course introduces computer science (coding), and emphasizes algorithm design and implementation using conditionals, loops, functions, recursion, and object oriented programming. The course will be taught in Python and will use the Python library to enable students to learn coding by creating a variety of video arcade style games. The course will consist primarily of project-based learning and students will continually be updating a portfolio containing artifacts of the programming skills they have achieved. Students taking this course should have an interest in math, science, and technology and have a desire to make a lot of money doing something fun!
