Topics in Computer Science

Overview

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 is excited to offer this professional learning program for teachers teaching the NLPS Topics in Computer Science (7351) in the 2022-23 school year and interested in piloting a full-year of standards aligned curricular materials woven together through a single course.
