Computer Science Course Planning

Corona High School is an Amazon Future Engineer School!

Corona High School has been accepted as a recipient of the Amazon Future Engineer Program.  Corona High will benefit from sponsored curriculum and professional development for its AP Computer Science Principles course.  More courses will be added as the pathway grows.  This is a very exciting partnership for the future of Corona High and access to computer science.  Click the image below to get more information about this program!!!

1st Year

Computer Science Essentials

Students will experience the major topics, big ideas, and computational thinking practices used by computing professionals to solve problems and create value for others. This course will empower students to develop computational thinking skills while building confidence that prepares them to advance to Computer Science Principles and Computer Science A.

2nd year

Computer Science Principles (AP) through Edhesive
AP Computer Science Principles is a complete, full-year course developed in partnership with the University of Texas at Austin’s UTeach Institute that focuses on the 7 “Big Ideas” in computer science using project-based approaches.  The course introduces students to the creative aspects of programming, abstractions, algorithms, large data sets, the Internet, cybersecurity, and how computing impacts our world. Students will develop the computational thinking skills needed to fully exploit the power of digital technology and help build a strong foundation in core programming and problem-solving.

3rd year
Computer Science A (AP, Java) through Edhesive
Students will learn to design and implement computer programs that solve problems relevant to today’s society, including art, media, and engineering. AP Computer Science A teaches object-oriented programming using the Java language and is meant to be the equivalent of a first semester, college-level course in computer science. It will emphasize problem solving and algorithm development, and use hands-on experiences and examples so that students can apply programming tools and solve complex problems.

4th year
Currently in development!  Possible a seminar/internship/design capstone course.  Perhaps a Cybersecurity or Data Science curriculum.  Stay tuned!
