Our students speak C++ at our STEM Labs

Super School University has added C++ to its 2012-2015 Curriculum.
“We wanted to go beyond the Common Core Standards. Our students are in 17 th. place internationally in science. We are involved in international project based-learning and our students have to be innovators. When the question is asked, What is the best language to support our new robotic’s programs? We feel the correct answer for right now is C++.” Said, Bob Barboza, Founder Super School University.
What is C++?
C++ (pronounced “cee plus plus”) is a statically typed, free-form, multi-paradigm, compiled, general-purpose programming language. It is regarded as an intermediate-level language, as it comprises a combination of both high-level and low-level language features.[3] It was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup starting in 1979 at Bell Labs as an enhancement to the C language. Originally named C with Classes, the language was renamed C++ in 1983,[4] as a pun involving the increment operator.
C++ is one of the most popular programming languages[5][6] with application domains including systems software, application software, device drivers, embedded software, high-performance server and client applications, and entertainment software such as video games.[7] Several groups provide both free and proprietary C++ compiler software, including the GNU Project, Microsoft, Intel and Embarcadero Technologies. C++ has greatly influenced many other popular programming languages, most notably C#[2] and Java.
C++ is also used for hardware design, where the design is initially described in C++, then analyzed, architecturally constrained, and scheduled to create a register-transfer level hardware description language via high-level synthesis.[8]
C++ is now being used at Super School University for the Cabo Verde International Tenth Island Project. We are working with a new line of robots and C++ is helping our teams to communicate with the robots. Our uninhabited island of Santa Luzia Cape Verde is a harsh environment. Students in our virtual labs are making plans for robots to conduct experiments in extreme heat. We are looking for additional teachers and students that have a command of C++.

Microsoft Visual C++ (often abbreviated as MSVC or VC++) is a commercial, integrated development environment (IDE) product from Microsoft for the C, C++, and C++/CLI programming languages. It has tools for developing and debugging C++ code, especially code written for the Microsoft Windows API, the DirectX API, and the Microsoft .NET Framework. This program is fully supported with frequent upgrades. It has a long standing success record and it is the right tool for the jobs associated with the Cabo Verde Tenth Island Project. It is very important that we work with programs that are highly supported.
