Overview

Norwalk High School's PLTW:  Computer Science Pathway consists of the following sequence of Computer Science courses:
 
9th Grade:     Computer Science Principles (CSP)
10th Grade:   Computer Science Applications (CSA)
11th Grade:    Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles (APCSP)
12th Grade:    Advanced Placement Computer Science A (APCSA)

Computer science is an integral part of our lives, shaping virtually everything from the objects around us to the ways in which we communicate, travel, work, and play. And the computer revolution has just begun – CS is now a key enabler for discovery and innovation in most other fields of endeavor, making it an incredibly relevant course of study.

Computer scientists invent the future by developing architectures and techniques for more advanced computing, and by developing the applications that operate within those frameworks.

Computer science is a powerful force for making a positive difference in the world. Computing has made possible undertakings such as landing the Curiosity rover on Mars, managing patient care to avoid undesired drug interactions, revolutionizing K-12 teaching and learning through the use of mobile devices, and even the creation of a computer that can win at Jeopardy. It’s a field of unbounded potential – get ready to change the world!
