Computer Science Takes Off at Hutchison

Upper school girls have been working on some interesting projects in AP Computer Science this year under the guidance of teacher Top Malasri.

Pictured is one screenshot image of a game Greeley Lindberg '18 created using the Greenfoot software in her AP Computer Science course. The initial game requirements called for a crab to move around the beach eating worms, but Greeley went above and beyond by adding a title screen, sound effects, and wandering lobsters that the player has to avoid.

Additional projects the girls have completed include writing a voting system that counts ballots and determines the winner of the election; simulating the hypothetical scenario of monkeys randomly typing things in hopes of producing Shakespeare; and encrypting and decrypting text using the Caesar cipher.

Mr. Malasri explained the benefits of our girls taking a computer science class: “Computer science is all about problem solving, and the skills that the girls learn in this course will be valuable regardless of which careers they pursue.”
