Course Description
World of Computing: The World of Computing course is an introductory computer science course that introduces the basics of programming with Karel the Dog and allows students to explore what a computer is and how technology has affected their lives. Students have the option to code in either blocks or text.
Grade Levels: 5th, 6th
Introduction to the Internet: Introduction to the Internet is an introductory computer science course that introduces the basics of designing a web page and how information and images are represented with computers. Students create a portfolio on the web to showcase projects they built throughout the course.
Grade Levels: 6th, 7th
Nevada Computer Science and Applications: In this course, students learn about computer science and computational thinking using Python and HTML to analyze and design solutions to problems using programming skills. Additional topics include algorithms, documentation, security and privacy, communication and collaboration, and data visualization.
Grade Levels: 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th
Introduction to Computer Science in JavaScript (Golden): This course teaches the foundations of computer science and basic programming, with an emphasis on helping students develop logical thinking and problem solving skills. Students learn material equivalent to a semester college introductory course in computer science and can program in JavaScript upon completion.
Grade Levels: 8th, 9th, 10th
Fundamentals of Cybersecurity: This is the first course in the cybersecurity pathway and will prepare students for an advanced cybersecurity course and/or cybersecurity certification(s). Students will learn cybersecurity topics such as software security, networking, system administration, and the basics of cryptography and programming.
Grade Levels: 9th, 10th, 11th
AP Computer Science Principles: AP Computer Science Principles introduces students to the foundational concepts of computer science and challenges them to explore how computing and technology can impact the world. With a unique focus on creative problem solving and real-world applications, AP Computer Science Principles prepares students for college and career. This course was last updated summer of 2019.
Grade Levels: 10th, 11th, 12th
AP Computer Science A (Nitro): This course is fully aligned to the College Board AP CS A course standards. Learn the basics of object-oriented programming with a focus on problem solving and algorithm development. Take this course and prepare to ace the AP Java test.
Grade Levels: 11th, 12th
