About the Class:
The Computer Programming class is an expansive course focusing on computer programming through making software, games, mobile apps, advanced websites, and smart gadgets (with Arduino). Half of the course, called Industry-Standard Languages, will be guided instruction focusing on programming logic while focusing on an industry-standard language (C++ or Java). The other half of the course, called Personal Interest Area, will be self-guided, project-based learning focusing on exploring programming related topics, such as: game development, website development, mobile app development, and smart gadgets (with Arduino).Second-year students concentrate on taking their skills to the next level by working on special projects and developing leadership skills.
We compete in many computer programming competitions throughout the year. We have competed at Eastern Michigan University's programming competition, Business Professionals of America's programming events and at University of Michigan Dearborn's programming competition.
