Student Story: Colton

Illinois, USA

Tell us about yourself

My name is Colton, I’m a freshman in high school, and I play basketball and tennis. I love learning about world history, and I will take on anybody in some sports trivia.

What got you interested in learning computer science?

I recently attended a STEM lecture that made me aware of all the potential careers that stem (no pun intended) from knowing computer science.

How did you find out about CodeHS?

I had been hearing about the great things CodeHS were doing. As this coincided with my desire to learn computer science, I knew I should sign up for CodeHS and I certainly do not regret it.

Favorite program you’ve made so far?

As I said earlier, I love basketball, so creating an All-Star criteria was pretty awesome. It examined a player’s stats and determined whether or not he should be an All-Star.
