Computer Science Year 10 (Half Year) (10COS)

Computer Science is designed for students who will use the open graphic package GIMP, to create and manipulate images for use in web pages and/or games. They will be introduced to the creation of simple arcade games using the open source software Gamemaker. Students will continue to develop skills in digital literacy including keyboarding, file management, and research. They will also be introduced to some key programming concepts which will prepare them for senior-level Computer Science courses. Theoretical knowledge (including number systems such as binary), and usability of interfaces will also be taught.
