Computer Science

At the Dukes, children have the opportunity to design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems, and solving problems by decomposing them into smaller parts. Children have used sequences, selection and repetition, and they work with variables, which input or output information. Children develop their reasoning skills through use of algorithms and debugging.
