Santa Barbara High’s Computer Science Academy is Breaking New Ground
Great news from Santa Barbara High’s Computer Science Academy, according to Principal John Becchio, “We not only got all our Computer Science Academy courses University of California a-g approved but we might have the only computer science course in the nation approved for area “f” (fine arts). Computational art is the course and it was developed with one of our steering committee advisors, Zoe Wood, a computer science professor at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.”
Following are the five UC-approved courses:
• “Computational Art,” approved for area ‘f’ – fine arts
• “Mobile Programming,” approved for area ‘g’ – elective
• “C Programming” (summer program), approved for area ‘g’ – elective
• “AP Computer Science,” approved for area ‘g’ – elective
