Windham High Students Take Free Computer Science Course at Eastern

Thanks to the efforts of Provost Rhona Free; Amilcah Gomes, assistant director in the Academic Services Center; and Dorothy Potter, headmaster at WHS Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Academy, a dozen high-performing students at Windham High School are enrolled, free of charge, this semester in the Computer Game Design and Visualization (CSC 212) course. The course is taught by Joel Rosiene, associate professor of math and computer science.

With some seats available, Free worked with Potter to carefully screen each student and make sure they met the prerequisites for the course (three AP course plus AP Calculus); secured parental permission; and with the help of the Registrar's Office, got the students enrolled.

Participating students include Zachary Noris, Joshua Dupont, Sebastian Ruffino, Dominic Rivera, Neftali Guzman, Joseph Santiago, Elijah Sanchez, Jennifer Figueroa, Cyan Green, Tyler Szabo, Shelby Green and Caleb Nuhn.
