COMPUTER SCIENCE

St. Edward High School offers a rigorous program that gives students a wide range of computer science topics to explore, more so than what other schools offer. While we require students to have a deep understanding of computational thinking and knowledge on how computers operate at the machine level, our faculty provides a wide number of platforms and subjects for students to explore the ecosystems of software development (Web, mobile, virtual reality, augmented reality, game consoles, etc.).

 

In April 2019, St. Edward High School teamed up with Challenge America, Cleveland Clinic Innovations and the VA Northeast Ohio Health Care System to help launch Challenge America: Makers for

Veterans (CAMVETS) in the Joseph & Helen Lowe Institute for Innovation. This program matched participating veterans with a designated technical team to create devices that will address their individual challenges and improve their daily lives. By launching the make-a-thon component of the CAMVETS program at St. Ed’s, veterans and their teams utilized the work spaces and makerspaces of the Innovation Center to collaboratively ideate and use robust machines, labs and materials to help with any engineering needs.

 

Co-organized by Computer Science teacher and CAMVETS team member Anthony Mortimer, the CAMVETS Make-a-thon was a collaborative effort with help from St. Edward faculty, staff and students. “By contributing to the CAMVETS Make-athon, my fellow Edsmen and I were able to collaborate creatively with a team to find solutions for these veterans in need and connect with professionals to achieve that common goal,” says Justin Planovsky ’19.

St. Ed's plans to participate in Challenge America's next make-a-thon in fall 2019.
