Topics in Computer Science


The new Next Level Programs of Study (NLPS) Topics in Computer Science is designed for students to investigate emerging disciplines within the field of computer science. Students will use foundational knowledge from 7183 Principles of Computing to study the areas of data science, artificial intelligence, app/game development, and security. Students will utilize knowledge related to these areas and programming skills to develop solutions to authentic problems.

Nextech provides professional development activities for Topics in Computer Science pulling together a full-year of standards aligned curricular materials woven together through a single course in an intensive two-day workshop in the summer and follow-up opportunities throughout the school year for teachers to reflect and connect. To get the most of your experience, we’d also suggest considering attending the Bootstrap: Data Science workshop in June 2024.
