COMPUTER SCIENCE Exploring Computers, Programming II

In Exploring Computer Science II students will cover the following topics:

  • Intro to Web Design
  • Online ethics and safety and Big Data
  • Text-based Programming (Python and Javascript)
  • Robotics Challenges (VEX robotics).

ECS II digs deeper into the concepts explored during ECS I. It is recommended students wishing to take advanced computer science classes complete both ECS I and ECS II. Exploring Computer Science courses are for everyone, not just those that want to be “programmers”. This course is meant to introduce and explore computing and technology to all students. Exploring Computer Science is based on 6 main computer science topics Human Computer Interaction, Problem Solving, Web Design, Programming, Computing and Data Analysis and Robotics. The course
was developed around a framework of both computer science content and computational practice. Assignments and instruction are socially relevant, practical and meaningful for students. It is recommended students take Exploring Computers and Programming 1 before taking Exploring and Computers 2.
