The Ultimate High School Computer Science Sequence: 9 Months In

By Justin Skycak on

The Eurisko sequence started during the summer of 2020 with an initial cohort of 5 high school students, all aged 15-16 years old and entering their junior year (11th grade). The content of this sequence similar to what would be covered in upper-level undergraduate courses (e.g. data structures/algorithms ranging from linked lists & sorting algorithms to graphs & traversals), and some content may even be beyond (e.g. building a machine learning library in Python from the ground up). The students build everything from scratch: for example, instead of using external libraries like numpy or pandas, the students built their regressors and classifiers on top of matrix and dataframe classes that they wrote themselves.
