Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this java class:

Learn Java and get a head start on the AP Computer Science exam in this summer course for high school students.

Students in this summer course learn Java, one of the most powerful and high-level programming languages in the world. In fact, Java is the language most emphasized by universities within their computer science major.

This is a beginner course and is tailored for people who have little to no programming experience. Our instruction starts at the basics but quickly transitions into high-level programming topics such as object-oriented programming and recursion. By the end of the course, students reinforce what they've learned by creating an original portfolio-ready product using the Java language. Additionally, students will gain a head start in the AP Computer Science class as our class teaches all the topics that the AP Computer Science class tests on.

Prerequisites & Ages: The program is ideal for high school students with a strong interest in coding. Prior coding/programming experience is not required, but students must be comfortable with computer basics.

    Reviewed by Emily Mittleman on 4/10/2023
    I really enjoyed the goal-oriented nature of the course. Instead of only learning about the theory behind computing, we got a chance to apply what was being taught by writing code and putting everything together to build something practical. Also, we covered a wide range of topics aside from just programming like a little bit of computer hardware, files & file formats, and HTML. After taking this class, I feel like there are so many more possibilities and applications of computer science than I originally thought. Overall, I was really impressed with how well-designed the course was.
