This year was a bumpy start: Due to class size balancing, lots of classes got a bit disrupted at the beginning few weeks and we had kids moving into and out of classes until early september. But we are now in full swing!
There are 2 IED teachers this year:
One is also the APCSA teacher and does a Computer Science Discoveries class as well. The other teaches only IED. This is big, guys! This is a great sign for the program!
We are not running CIM or CEA this year: we hope to run those next year, with a bunch of interested students!
But we DO have the EDR class and AP CSP classes as separate classes: last year due to numbers we had to combo-class it: which meant half the room was in EDR, and the other half was in CSP. Made lecturing AND building AND groupwork simulateously very interesting.
We have 16 sections of PLTW - Engineering or Computer Science classes happening this year.
