Computer Science Boot Camp

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
