Amazon Funds New Computer Science Program
AP Computer Science at West Campus
We are extremely happy to provide West Campus students the opportunity to participate in the 2020-2021 Amazon Future Engineer program to help expand computer science education at our school! We will continue the program for 2021-2022.
Amazon and their curriculum provider, Edhesive, work to inspire, educate, and train students to pursue careers in computer science. By being selected for this program, West Campus was able to offer our first AP Computer Science course in the fall of 2020. The Amazon Future Engineer program provides us with curriculum materials, professional development for our teachers, and opportunities to connect with Amazon engineers.
The program is an optional program that students can take to prepare for the AP Computers Science exams. For the 2020-21 year, the AP CS A program has 15 students working independently using the Edhesive online curriculum. For the 2021-22 school year, students will have the opportunity to take AP CS A or AP CS Principles program. Students will only be able to take one class at a time. These classes are intended to prepare students for the AP exam as an independent study program.
Parents and students who are interested in learning more about our computer science initiative should email Mr. Mica Brown, our Engineering, Programming, & Technology Teacher. Follow us on Instagram using @westcampusengineering.
Classes start again the middle of August. Contact Mr. Brown if you want to get started.
