In the advanced and independent courses they will learn JAVA, C, Swift, and PHP programming languages with an introduction to robotics programming, graphical games and iPhone/Android Development.
Designed for students interested in careers in computer programming, engineering, mathematics, or science related fields.
Eanes ISD will be offering two new courses for iOS App Development in 2018-19.
- Students in middle school will have the opportunity to take an Intro to App Development course as an elective. This course is designed to help students build a sold foundation in programming fundamentals using Swift and/or Java as the language.
- Students at Westlake High School will have the opportunity to take Swift Coding as a computer science elective. Students will learn the skills needed to be an app developer and design apps of their own design.
Both courses will provide students the opportunity to become fluent in the state-of-the-art mobile technology and career-ready skills using coding.
