Murdoch University Student Mentors at Applecross SHS

Under the partnership of the Memorandum of Understanding between Applecross SHS and Murdoch University, we currently host two Computer Science students in our Software Development class each week. Maddy Topaz and Anna Whitcher are both highly skilled software developers who joined our class of Year 10 students in Term 1. These students come to one lesson each week to share their love of C# (C Sharp) and online gaming and to upskill both the classroom teacher, Ms Reed, and the students.  Students have been learning how to code in C# as Maddy and Anna take them through coding basics and introduce them to the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) of Visual Studio.  We have progressed to debugging an existing game and the students are eager to create their own programs.

The assessed work will be based on the Software Development Life Cycle. Each group will document their programs using the diagrams and models in the Life Cycle. In this way we are teaching students not just how to code, but how to disassemble problems and to plan, solve and document the solutions in a structured manner.  The classes are very hands on and interactive and the feedback from students has been positive. Murdoch academics have committed to this program as a leadership opportunity for their students and have requested that the mentoring be an ongoing arrangement.
