Amphi High School - AP Computer Science Principles

Course Syllabus | College Board Information

Here are some of the highlights from our AP Computer Science Principles class at Amphi High School

Coloring Books

We designed an adult coloring book that can be purchased from the Amphi Code Club for $5 each. Each design was coded using Turtle commands so the final image is 'drawn' on the screen and then printed in a booklet. The coloring book contains 16 designs, each of which was created by an AP Computer Science student. All proceeds go directly into helping students pay for the AP Exam

GenCyber Field Trip

Students attended the U of A GenCyber Event, which is put on by the University of Arizona MIS Department as part of a larger Women in CyberSecurity Conference. Students spent the day involved in a series of CyberSecurity activities put on by different industry professionals and university professors. They got experience flying drones, solving crypto challenges, picking locks, and getting an overview of password cracking techniques. They also learned about future professions in CyberSecurity and the many, many scholarship and college loan-forgiveness opportunities that exist for students interested in CyberSecurity careers.
