Creative Computing: Introduction to Computer Studies (ICS2O) is a course that provides students with a better understanding of computers, from hardware components to software applications and operating systems. Following the engineering design process, students will develop programming skills and will create an app to solve a defined problem. Students will also have the opportunity to see real-world software applications through guest speakers of Ottawa’s innovative tech companies.

This is an open course designed for all high school students. Students in grade 8 may enroll in this reach-ahead course with approval from their parents and written support from their current principal. Students enrolled in this course will gain hands-on computer experience and skills right at the Faculty of Engineering. Students can either take part in the full-course or take Part 1 of the course and come back next summer to complete Part 2. Those who successfully complete the full course will gain a full credit toward their secondary school diploma and those who successfully complete Part 1 of the course will gain half a credit toward their secondary school diploma.

Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

  • Curiosity: Developing your programming skills is more and more important nowadays. This course will give a great introduction to computer studies while showing the students how to develop their own app!
  • Independence: This course is a combination of Synchronous and Asynchronous work. Therefore, students will develop good working habits, capacity to work on their own or in pairs on projects and respect deadlines.
