Create & Learn offers a number of great courses as part of our high school coding curriculum. The courses cover concepts ranging from introductory concepts to advanced applications, and are uniquely structured to offer students the opportunity to practice with the coding skills they learn! We offer tutors in a number of computer science subjects, such as the subjects listed below. Our students also enjoy private tutoring in math, digital art, and much more!
1. Python for AI
Python is a widely-used high-level language used for web development, game development, building apps, machine learning, and more. It’s used by many well-known companies like Netflix and Google. It’s also one of the simplest and most popular coding languages for starting to learn how to code. Python for AI teaches the basics of Python, putting a strong focus on the elements of Python which are most relevant to artificial intelligence, such as data structures and data science libraries.
2. CS Principles
Alongside learning to code, it is important to understand exactly how computers work in the first place. In this course, students are introduced to a wide range of fundamental topics in computer science, such as binary, encryption, networking, and more. Students also learn how computing innovations, such as the Internet, work, how to explore their potential impacts, and how to contribute to a computing culture which is collaborative and ethical. This class also meets the requirements for the AP CSP exam as defined by the College Board. If you're not sure which exam is right for you, here's how to choose the right AP Computer Science course.
3. AP CS Java
Java is another popular programming language, used in a variety of applications across all sorts of different systems. This class introduces students to software engineering and object-oriented programming using the Java programming language. It covers a broad range of topics, such as designing solutions to problems, using data structures to organize large sets of data, developing and implementing algorithms to process data, and more. It also thoroughly prepares students for the AP CSA exams offered by the College Board.
4. Website Coding
5. Cloud Computing
Cloud computing goes hand in hand with web development. It’s used to power nearly every website on the Internet, as well as mobile applications. In Cloud Computing, students learn how to create interactive web applications using Google Cloud Platform and Firebase, tools which are used by professional software engineers. By the end of the course, students will be able to host their own websites and web applications.
6. Android Java
As mentioned before, Java is a very popular language. One of its most popular uses is for application development on Android platforms. Each session engages students in developing real-world mobile applications, not just learning about Java, but also how to apply that knowledge to actual solutions. This is an advanced class intended for students who already have a solid Java background.
7. AI Creators
Artificial intelligence is one of the most exciting fields of modern computer science. From self-driving cars to Siri, AI continues to develop and progress every day. AI Creators focuses on teaching machine learning concepts, developing simple and practical AI apps using Python, open source packages, and commercial software. By the end of the course, students have a firm foundation in key concepts used to code AI, creating models representative of a variety of data, and more.
