Dal, NS partner to develop, deliver computer science course for grade 12 students

February 3, 2021
Dalhousie University has partnered with the Nova Scotia Department of Education and Early Childhood Development to give Grade 12 students the opportunity to participate in a university-level computer science course. Students in the program will take part in a computer programming course that has been co-designed by Dal and NS to build on the high school Computer Programming 12 class. Students will earn an optional credit towards CSCI 1105 Introduction to Computer Programming, a core first-year course in Dal’s Faculty of Computer Science. The program will teach students coding skills, expose them to computer science programming, and build their confidence so that they are more likely to complete university education. Dal (NS)
