GEAR UP YOUR CHILD FOR A COMPUTER SCIENCE UNDERGRAD BEFORE THEY SET FOOT IN TO A COLLEGE
Imagine the significant advantage they will have over peers having advanced through undergrad computer science courses years before they go to college !!! Only at Thinking Feet
This unique program will mirror the content covered in the first two years of Computer Science Undergrad, while maintaining an appropriate pace of instruction that will be manageable by students in high school.
Starting with the content of AP Computer Science (High School), the curriculum will then take students into depths of algorithms, data structures and more, transforming them into early computer scientists. They will cover many topics taught in Computer Science undergrad which will give them an edge in the college application process plus a significant advantage over peers when they actually set foot into college.
Coding is just a small part of Computer Science and this program will take students deep into areas of computer science and engineering like algorithm analysis, memory optimization etc. Truly mirroring what is taught in Computer Science undergrad.
We are being advised on content by Computer Science professors from some of the top universities in the country
Who will benefit
Ideal for students who have taken or will be taking AP Computer Science in High School and also have a high likelihood of pursuing an undergrad in Computer Science or related field.
This course will excite students who are ready to take the leap beyond coding into the world of analysis and optimization of computer algorithms. They will learn software development strategies and techniques to make computer programs run more efficiently. If your child has a high degree of persistence, self motivation and a hunger to learn advanced technology, they will thrive in this program.
90 minute class, once a week with weekly homework assignments. Program starts Fall 2018.
We are still debating whether to offer the class completely online or have a classroom model or a combination.
As we firm up the details, if you would like to be informed when we are ready to enroll, please fill out the short form below and we will drop you a line as soon as we are ready to enroll.
We will also host an open house in August to share more details about this unique program.
Thinking Feet’s main learning center is located in the Ballantyne area in Mecklenburg county in the Wingate University campus. We are just minutes away from nearby Blakeney, Weddington, Marvin, Waxhaw, Pineville, Wesley Chapel, Piper Glen and Fort Mill, SC.
