Brand New ECE Course Comes to WHS
By: Kavi Khadar
Coming this fall, Mrs. Campbell will be teaching a brand new UCONN ECE digital imaging course open to next year's students.
As a college course, the workload will be a bit more intensive; however, Campbell has her syllabus outlined for what the course will bring.
“There are a lot of team projects, problem-solving, and cross-curricular activities. I have already met with the professors at UCONN and they are very enthusiastic about WHS joining the faculty,” she said.
Taking this ECE course can prep you for college, and if you're looking to major in anything involving graphic design, this is the class for you!
It’s necessary to take the regular Digital Imaging class prior to taking this course so here’s what you can expect. The class involves taking your own photos with cameras that Campbell provides. You'll then take those photos and bring them into Photoshop or Illustrator and edit them to perfection.
It doesn't stop there. After editing the photos, you’ll have the opportunity to put these photos on various items like shirts, mugs, tiles, posters, stickers, key chains, etc. As a student that took the normal digital imaging class, I wish I could have had this great opportunity to take an ECE class in Campbell’s classroom.
I asked why students should consider taking this class after Digital Imaging and Campbell said, “This will give the students opportunity to earn college credit and advance their skills and understanding of various tools of communication.” I can confidently say that these attributes are going to be and important in life and especially college.
You can find out more about this course by stopping by and talking to Mrs. Campbell in room 23A down the tech hallway or Mrs. Mucinskas to get the sign up sheet for UCONN.
