We would love to see you at CC Fest.
works at Google by day, and runs HappyCoding.io in his free time. He's also active on the Processing and P5.js tags on Stack Overflow, as well as the Processing forum. If you've posted a question about Processing or P5.js on the internet, chances are you've talked to Kevin!
Whether it is creating computer graphics models of underwater shipwrecks or using art and creativity to help students learn computational thinking, Professor Zoë Wood’s projects unite visual arts, mathematics and computer science. Via her NSF funded research projects she works with colleagues and students on robotics and computer graphics algorithms for shipwreck discovery and mapping which resulted in the discovery of a rare World War 2 airplane wreck. She works to increase the number of underrepresented students in her field through research projects, outreach activities and advising the student group Women Involved in Software and Hardware (W.I.S.H.). As co-founder of the interdisciplinary minor, Computing for the Interactive Arts, she believes in empowering students to realize their artistic visions via coding.
Richard Johnston began his teaching career in 1993 and has taught Mathematics at SBHS since 1998. Richard pioneered the Principles/Introduction to CS course in 2011. He envisioned a computer science program at SBHS that would open doorways into fields of study ranging from the arts to engineering. Richard assumed the role of Director of the CSA in 2016. His hope is to create opportunities for all students to learn to code because he believes every student needs to be able to read, write, do mathematics, and develop code in the modern world.
