Mr. Ned Lapo
Welcome Viking students and parents!
This is my fifth year here at Amundsen (4th year teaching Computer Science) and I couldn't be more excited to be back in the building. I’m looking forward to another wonderful year. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out via email.
This year-long course is designed to introduce students to the field of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M.) through an exploration of accessible and engaging topics to broaden their understanding of everything computer science encompasses. The goal of this course is to develop students' critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, writing, listening, and speaking skills to better prepare them for their post-secondary education. Students will learn how the internet works, analyze big data, build and stylize web pages, produce interactive computer games, strengthen keyboarding skills, and participate in several project-based activities that demonstrate the real-world applications of computing.
