Dr. Duncan teaches computer science 1 and 2 in room 258. She tells us more about computer sciences and the upcoming programming competition at IUSB. “We have a competition in programming coming up. Students from both computer science 1 and 2 are going to go to a competition at IUSB. We are sending two teams, one is going to program in Python and C plus plus.”

There are many different ways of coding, some include; Python and C plus plus. One way of putting these coding techniques into play is by creating a character in a game. WHACK is centered around interacting with the computer and learning how to communicate with your peers. Soon students will be going to IUSB, Indiana University South Bend, to participate in a programming competition.

If you plan on developing video games after high

school, this is a great way to get started. For more information visit Dr. Duncan at room 258 or look under the businesses classes in the schedule to sign up for computer science 1 or 2.
