Industry Professionals Visit CSA Mobile Programming Class!
On January 4th, Dr. Bryce Boe and Sébastien Cuendet, Senior Software Engineers from Appfolio visited the CSA’s Mobile Programming class. After teaching Python programming basics, they challenged the students to work together to solve online puzzles at pythonchallenge.com. This experience not only broadened the students’ exposure to Python and Regular Expressions, but it also encouraged critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork. Dr. Boe plans to visit Mr. Muhl’s class on a monthly basis to continue challenging and inspiring our students!
October Pizza Lunch and Speaker Program features: Paul Berberian from Sphero
In October, our computer science students have the opportunity to meet Paul Berberian from Sphero. Sphero is the company that created the app-enabled BB-8 Star Wars toy which sold out on its first day. In 2010, it was just a start-up company. In 2011, its connected play robots hit the shelves. By 2015, it was invited to participate in the Disney Accelerator Program and it sold over one million Sphero robots. For more information, visit http://www.sphero.com or ask a CS student who attended!
Spreading some holiday cheer…
Students in Paul Muhl’s AP Computer Science Class participated in CALM’s Adopt-A-Family Program. The class was “matched” with a local family, and the students bought gifts from that family’s wish list. These gifts will be distributed by CALM and will undoubtedly make one family’s holiday season a little brighter!
