Introduction to Coding with Java (NEW!)

Critical Thinking - Problem-Solving - Coding Techniques

Program Information

Critical thinking, problem-solving, and disciplined creativity will all be challenged and engaged in this intensive, fun, low-stress introduction to coding techniques. This half-day camp focuses on familiarizing participants with the fundamentals of programming.

This camp will introduce students to Java, the world's most popular and important programming language. Using the object oriented structures of Java, students will learn to install the IBM Eclipse IDE development environment, the Java JDK from Oracle, and then design and compile programs, learn the basic constructs of programming structures and objects, and practice their new knowledge on fun projects (e.g., a basic game design, calculators, etc.).

Java is the official language of the AP Computer Science A Exam, and your daughter or son will leap ahead with the highly extensible skills and knowledge presented in this immersive camp experience.

No prior programming experience required - basic keyboarding ability and nothing more. Students must bring their own PC/Mac laptop with permission to install software.
