Hun's Computer Science Courses: A Place for Creativity and Collaboration

Whether a Hun student seeks an introduction to computers, or an Advanced Placement class in writing Java code, there is a course for them in the Hun School’s Computer Science and Engineering Department.
Consider Computer Science Discoveries, a new survey class. It covers everything from the fundamentals of designing a website, game, or app, to how a computer works, to the social impact of a screen-based society. It also studies using computers to solve real world problems. The curriculum comes from code.org, the international non-profit dedicated to exposing and attracting more students to computer science at school. Teacher and department Chair Amy Wright, said the class “demystifies” computers and shows the field is creative and collaborative. And it may lead students to pursue further study in AP Computer Science, Robotics, or Engineering Design classes.
