    This is the first of four courses offered in the Computer Science pathway.
     
    Foundations of Computer Science is designed to introduce students to the breadth of the field of computer science through an exploration of engaging and accessible topics. Rather than focusing the entire course on learning particular software tools or programming languages, the course is designed to focus the conceptual ideas of computing and help students understand why certain tools or languages might be utilized to solve particular problems. This course includes a broad range of topics in computing: impact of technology, programming structures, cyber security, and gaming development.
