At Ursuline, every student learns how to code.
Because technology is limitless, so is imagination, and the Academy's Computer Science Department keeps each student on the cutting edge.
Ursuline requires a year of computer science to graduate, and emphasis continues to be on programming. Students learn Java in multiple classes.
They use four 3D printers and Rasberry Pi, a mini-computer featured in Introduction to Computer Science classes. Student create their own smartphone apps, and get to understand computers at the basic level with arduino boards in Introduction to Digital Applications class. Webpage Design and Development class teaches Bootstrap, a popular web development framework.
Angela Montemayor and Maria Tracy, both 2016 graduates, started Ursuline’s Computer Science Club, and students continually compete in all-female programming competitions today.
