This fall, Nueva students had their first opportunity to take a computer science elective in machine learning, a form of artificial intelligence. Thirty students worked on programs that, in essence, teach computers how to learn from data and adapt on their own. Through their projects they sought insights in everything from crime statistics to Shakespeare plays.

Nueva is one of the few high schools in the United States to offer machine learning. The school decided to offer the class in response to several students who had been self-teaching for the last two years and expressed a strong interest in the topic. This class is one of a growing number of rotating computer science electives we offer to high school students. Previous courses have included Introduction to Computer Programming, Object Oriented Programming, Functional Programming, and Computer Internals. This semester we will be offering two new classes: Introduction to Mobile App Design and Computer Security. Students can also elect to take an independent project workshop course if they have a learning goal in mind that is not covered by one of the other classes offered that semester.
