The CCSC Computer Science For All initiative is off and running with all 10th grade students taking an Introduction to Computer Science course this year. So far, sophomores have closely examined the world around them by exploring questions such as “What defines technology? Is a pencil technology? What about a frozen dinner?” They have also begun some elementary coding.
For students in grade 12, Advanced Placement Computer Science is also available for the first time this year. Both courses are taught by Matt Pace, now in his third year at CCSC (and his eighth year as a teacher). Pace, who graduated with his degree in education from Ithaca College, previously taught 8th grade math.
