Ready to take on an AP level course? Our Java camp is a little different than our other camps in that it’s focused on following a curriculum, for the purpose of helping our students get a head start on the AP Computer Science “A” course. While we’re not likely to complete the entire course during just the camp, we’ll go as far as we can based on the skillset of the campers we get. This camp is aimed at those who are about to start AP CS A, or just want to get a head start with come curriculum-based Java learning!
Our camps use a combination of online platforms like Runestone or Coding Bat to get students coding the basics of
. We’ll use Runestone’s platform to help guide the students along the AP CS A curriculum, including potentially reviewing exam questions. Those who have their own laptops are welcome to bring those as well, and use Eclipse or another similar local program as their development environment. However, a laptop is not required for this camp.
Our curriculum will be based directly on the AP Computer Science A curriculum
. Students will start with learning variables and data types along with iteration and conditionals, and continuing moving through a crash course in objects and classes and how they work. Time permitting, we’ll get into arrays and beyond. While most of the camp will flow at about the same speed, some students who work faster or slower may also be accommodated.
