LEVEL 3 COMPUTER SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY​ ​3TECC 

What is this course about? To expose students to design thinking, working collaboratively on projects and developing investigative skills into the  world of computer science. Students will develop their ideas into a working prototype by the end of the course in web  development and computer programming (or either one of the two in consultation with the teacher). In the level 3  course it is desirable to have been exposed to a programming language and scripting language. Please discuss taking  this course with the specialist subject leader if you have limited programming experience. 

What sorts of things will I do? Develop a proposal and construct an online game (or other digital outcome of your own choice) using an object oriented  language eg. javascript, python. You will develop a website using scripting languages: html and css. If you want to  further your knowledge of data structures you have options to incorporate a database using php or firebase. You will  also investigate a computer science concept e.g. compression coding, HCI, encryption, binary and produce a report on  your investigation and apply these skills to one or more of your own projects.
