DC unveils new Computer Science Club

DC+unveils+new+Computer+Science+Club

As one of the best schools in Jacksonville, Florida, it is expected for Darnell Cookman to have multiple activities for students to participate in. Darnell Cookman has clubs like Quiz Bowl, bowling, chess, cheerleading, and 5000 Role Models. However, the most recent club that was added is the Computer Science Club, run by James Percy. Mr. Percy is a teacher here at Darnell but has offered to lead the computer science club from 3-4 pm after school. I got the chance to ask him a few questions about the computer science club.

Since this was a new club, it was necessary to ask Mr. Percy about his role in this new club. Mr. Percy answered, “I will be the faculty advisor for the club.” He then proceeded to state that this club is student-directed/driven since every member of the club is in high school. Mr. Percy also added that his role would be, “to help the students accomplish their goals.” So, this club will be revolved around the students.

The faculty advisor, Mr. Percy, was then asked how the production of the computer science club would impact the students who decided to join it. He responded, “Students who participate in the club can hope to improve their computer coding skills, collaborate with other students who share their interests, and explore the field of computer science.” The students of this club can expect to learn about computer coding, converse with others, and expand their knowledge about computer science.

To get an idea of the expectations for the students who wish to join this club Mr. Percy was asked if the students who wish to join this computer science club were required to know computer science before joining. Mr. Percy cleared the air by stating that the students may join the club “with or without any prior computer coding experience.” This may be a relief to students who wanted to join the club but did not know whether they had to know anything about computer coding.

By interviewing the faculty advisor new information was acquired about the new computer science club here at Darnell Cookman. Students looking to join this club should look forward to learning about computer coding, discussing science, and entering with no prior experience.
