Computer Science at Teddington School
This course will run subject to student uptake and viability.
The emphasis of this course is on computational thinking- a kind of reasoning used by both humans and machines - which is an important life skill. Computer Science involves questions that have the potential to change how we view the world. For example, we may be computing with DNA at some stage in the future, with computer circuits made of genes. This leads to the question, does the natural world ‘compute’? This course has an emphasis on abstract thinking, general problem-solving, algorithmic and mathematical reasoning, scientific and engineering-based thinking
