LHS has a lot of opportunities in the computer technology field. This course showcases a number of the areas of study available to students.

Explore a variety of important computer science topics in a fun and engaging way! Learn more about how computers and technology are used in; problem solving, web development, animations and games, the design process, data and society, and physical computing. This course is a prerequisite to other Computer Technology courses.

Explore the fundamentals of building, coding, and testing a robot using the VEX EDR system. In this course, you will learn to control a robot in a virtual world and then build physical robots that complete a variety of tasks. 

Video games have become a huge industry both in the United States and around the world. In this course, we will use the Stencyl game engine.  Stencyl makes the programming aspect of game design a lot easier to learn without sacrificing the ability to create fun and engaging 2D games.


A gentle introduction to the C-style programming languages through the use of 3D environments, games, and animations. Students will use a visual game editor such as Unity or Unreal with increasing emphasis on written code as the course progresses. Prior enrollment in 3D Design and Animation is helpful, but not required.
