Computer Science Boot Camp
After completing our boot camp, students will be several steps ahead when they encounter difficult Computer Science topics during the school year. This two-week introduction to programming will teach students Processing, a fun, graphics-oriented library that uses the Java programming language. Students will create interactive and animated programs using frame-by-frame animation, mouse and keyboard interaction, and sound support. We also cover many of the programming topics encountered on the AP Computer Science A exam, such as variables, selection, iteration, arraylists, and classes/objects.
Computer Science Boot Camp Logistics
This boot camp is an interactive online course using Zoom. Each session will be a mix of teacher-delivered content and live student coding sessions. Students will use the free Processing IDE that will allow them to code on their own computers.
- Sessions will meet Monday through Friday, August 3–14, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT
- By the end of the course, students will
- learn the basics of object-oriented programming (OOP) design
- become familiar with the Java programming language
- practice coding with topics and algorithms that are tested on the AP Computer Science A exam
- design and code their own arcade-style game
- The complete course costs $2,000
- No prior programming experience is needed
